Brought to life by the spirited music of British band, Madness, Our House follows the story of young London lad Joe Casey. On the night of his sixteenth birthday, an excited Joe takes the pretty ‘girl next door’ Sarah out on their first date. Desperate to impress the girl of his dreams, he breaks into a new building development near his house on a romantic whim to show her the view over north London. The police arrive and Joe faces a tough decision: to run, or give himself up. The story splits in two as we follow the fortunes, and misfortunes, of Good Joe and Bad Joe. Our House is a hilarious romp through the hit songs of one of the most successful British bands. Featuring many fabulous songs such as Baggy Trousers, Driving in My Car, It Must Be Love and of course Our House, it is an intriguing story with a strong moral message, demonstrating that the decisions we make can shape our lives.

Our House is performed by the extraordinary talented students of Clyst Vale Community College as they hit the Barnfield stage once more; bringing the same energy, professionalism and passion that has become a hallmark of their productions. Recent performances at the Barnfield have included The Addams Family, Sweeney Todd and last year’s roaring success Annie. Come and enjoy their latest vibrant production which is sure to leave you feeling uplifted with the songs of Madness stuck firmly in your head!
