Based in 1980s Camden Town, Our House tells the story of London lad, Joe Casey, who, on the night of his 16th birthday, takes the girl of his dreams, Sarah, out on their first date.
In an effort to impress her with bravado, Joe breaks into a building site overlooking his home on Casey Street. When the police turn up, a split-second decision forces him to choose between himself and his heart as the story splits in two: one which sees Joe stay to face the music, and the other which sees him flee, leaving Sarah to run from the police. As two very different paths unfold before him, the consequences of that choice will change his life forever.
Our House is a very British, Olivier Award-winning musical featuring a collection of Madness hits, including: House of Fun, Baggy Trousers, Driving in my Car, It Must Be Love and of course Our House.
From the company that brought you the sold out Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat.
