MTU Cork School of Music BA Musical Theatre presents
Our House
Written by Tim Firth
Music and lyrics by Madness
Directed by Christine Scarry
WED 21–SAT 24 FEB, 7.30PM | SAT 24 FEB, 2.30PM
Live at The Everyman

The next generation of professional stage performers from all over Ireland, with a top-notch professional creative team and dynamic orchestra, present Our House, featuring the music of the iconic band, Madness.

We meet Joe on the night of his sixteenth birthday when – in the process of trying to impress his girlfriend, Sarah – he makes a decision between right and wrong that will impact the rest of his life. From that sliding-doors moment, we begin to follow two versions of Joe – one good and one bad. In the parallel worlds of Good and Bad, Joe Casey heads towards an explosive finale and we find out the decision he made. Did he turn his back on a life of crime and do the right thing?

A clever and moving story with some brilliant comedic writing, all wrapped up in signature dance routines and high-energy hit after hit of the music of Madness, including ‘Baggy Trousers’, ‘This Must Be Love’ and ‘House of Fun’. Based on a book by Tim Firth (Calendar Girls, Kinky Boots), Our House was first staged in 2002 at London’s Cambridge Theatre.
