Our House by Tim Firth Music & Lyrics by Madness

On the night of his sixteenth birthday London lad Joe Casey takes Sarah, the girl of his dreams, out for a romantic evening. On a whim, he breaks into a building development to show Sarah the view over north London. When the police come, Joe faces a tough decision: to run, or give himself up. It is at this point that the story splits in two as we follow the fortunes, and misfortunes, of Good Joe and Bad Joe.

The two differing paths of Joe Caseys future years are carefully watched over by Joes deceased father, who regrets his own criminal choices. As the parallel worlds of Good and Bad Joe Casey interweave and head towards an explosive climax, we turn back time and find out which decision the 16-year-old Joe made.

Set in 1980s Camden Town, revolving around the music of one of Londons most popular and successful bands, Madness. Writer Tim Firth explores the themes of love, family values, growing up, responsibility and dealing with losing the people that shape us. Featuring a collection of hits including Baggy Trousers, It Must Be Love and of course Our House, the show is a must for anyone loving a very British musical.

This amateur production of Our House is presented by special arrangement with Musical Theatre International (Europe)
