Rachael and Lisa wanted to make a theatre show but couldn’t think of an idea.
Armed with a tape recorder, they went on to the streets and asked people to take a good look at them and imagine what their show could be about. Who should play the main character? Who should be the funny one? What should the story be?
What they heard and recorded was funny, heartfelt, sometimes jaw-dropping but always very revealing about what we can (and can’t) imagine when we look at someone.
No Idea plays in the Young Vic’s Maria theatre.
