OUR HOUSE combines a witty and brilliantly-crafted romantic tale with the
energetic and often madcap songs of Madness. Our House is the story of
Joe Casey who, on the night of his sixteenth birthday, takes Sarah, the girl of his dreams, out on their first date. In an effort to impress her with bravado, he breaks into a building site overlooking his home on Casey Street, which is owned by Mister Pressman, a high-end property developer.
