Our House

Musical in 2 Acts. Book by Tim Firth. Music by Madness


This romantic comedy begins one summer's evening in North London. The night of a young bloke's sixteenth birthday. The night he commits a petty crime to impress the girl he loves. When the police arrive, young Joe is faced with one of those crossroad choices faced by people at some point in their lives, stay or run.

Our House follows the two courses his life would have taken had he stayed to face the music or bunked the law and made a run for it.
