Dr Challoner's Grammar School presents
OUR HOUSE the Musical
Based in 1980s Camden Town, Our House tells the story of London lad Joe Casey, who, on the night of his sixteenth birthday, takes Sarah, the girl of his dreams, out on their first date. In an effort to impress her with bravado, he breaks into a building site overlooking his home on Casey Street, which is owned by Mister Pressman, a high-end property developer. 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. The show follows the lead character, Joe Casey, through two different pathways that his life could take following a single split second decision, in a moment of madness, and the ultimate consequences of that decision as the two worlds follow their parallel paths.
Through the music of Madness, the musical explores the themes of love, family values, growing up, responsibility and dealing with losing the people that shape us, through a script that is packed with humour and poignancy in equal measure.
OUR HOUSE is a musical with music and lyrics by Madness and one song "It Must Be Love" written by Labi Siffre and a book by playwright Tim Firth.
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.
