Italia Conti Arts Centre presents the multi Olivier award-winning musical Our House by Tim Firth and Madness.

On the night of his 16th birthday, Joe Casey takes the girl of his dreams, Sarah, out on their first date. In an effort to impress her with bravado, Joe breaks into a building site overlooking his home on Casey Street. When the police turn up, a split-second decision forces him to choose between himself and his heart as the story splits in two: one which sees Joe stay to face the music, and the other which sees him flee and leave Sarah to run from the police. As two very different paths unfold before him, the consequences of that choice will change his life forever…

The show features all your favourite Madness hits including House of Fun, Baggy Trousers, Driving in my Car, It Must Be Love and, of course, Our House.
