University of Chichester Musical Theatre Performance Company
By Tim Firth. Music and Lyrics by Madness
The Musical Theatre Performance Company is proud to present this punchy, gritty, slightly rough-round-the-edges musical, with a joyously familiar score. Brought to you by the same team that produced ‘The Addams Family’ and ‘Jekyll & Hyde’ in their 2018/19 season.
Based in 1980s Camden, OUR HOUSE tells the story of London lad Joe Casey, who, on the night of his sixteenth birthday, takes the girl of his dreams, out on their first date. In an effort to impress her, he breaks into a building site 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 and leaves Sarah to run from the police.
OUR HOUSE features a toe-tapping collection of Madness hits including ‘House of Fun’, ‘Baggy Trousers’, ‘Driving in my Car’, ‘It Must Be Love’ and of course, ‘Our House’. The show is a huge hit with audiences looking for a very British musical.
