Next event:


Our House is a musical with music and lyrics by the 1980's pop band Madness. The original production won the Olivier Award for Best New Musical in 2003.
It’s Joe Casey’s sixteenth birthday and he wants to impress Sarah, a very special girl. So he breaks into a building development - a decision that will change his life.  The police turn up and Joe’s life splits into two: Good Joe gives himself up and Bad Joe runs from the police, leaving Sarah. Over seven years and two alternative lives we witness the consequences of that night. Good Joe fights to keep Sarah; Bad Joe is marrying her in Las Vegas. Good Joe fights to save his house on Casey Street; Bad Joe wants to demolish it.  Joe’s dead father watches over these Joes and pulls the two stories together.
