Inspired by the music of Madness, this raucous musical comedy is an uplifting tale of life and love, heartbreak and hilarity, good and bad, set in London’s famous Camden Town in the mid-80s.
It’s Joe Casey’s 16th birthday and tonight’s the night he’s treating his girlfriend Sarah to an evening in a brand new luxury apartment – the only problem is he has to break in! When the police turn up Joe has to decide – run away, or face the music – a choice that will set the course of his life, and his love, forever.
Bringing together one of the most successful British writers with one of the best loved British bands, this new actor-musician production will have you laughing, crying and dancing in the aisles.
Using some of the greatest hits from the mighty Madness back catalogue including: Our House, Baggy Trousers, My Girl, Driving in My Car, The Wings of
a Dove, Night Boat to Cairo and the all-time classic It Must Be Love – you’d be mad to miss it!
Our House is written by Tim Firth whose work includes the record-breaking Calendar Girls, Kinky Boots, Preston Front and Neville’s Island.
An original musical triumph.
Sheer cheeky good fun.
