Presented by Chelmsford Young Generation
Based in 1980s Camden Town, London, Our House tells the story of Joe Casey, who, on the night of his sixteenth birthday, takes Sarah out on their first date. In an effort to impress her, he breaks into a new building overlooking his home on Casey Street. The police turn up, at which point Joe’s life splits into two: the Good Joe, who stays to help, and Bad Joe, who flees.
A story of different life choices and consequences, Our House is that rare thing of being both moral and fun. The plot is cleverly interwoven with a great pop score from 80s Ska band Madness and features all their top hits including House of Fun, Baggy Trousers, Driving in my Car, It Must Be Love and, of course, Our House.
This very British musical by Tim Firth is a huge hit with audiences and performers alike. With Bryan Cass at the piano rehearsing those iconic Madness tunes, Sallie Warrington returns to direct Young Gen, promising some high energy, manic dance routines.
It’s going to be Madness!
