Our House


When Our House was staged in the West End in 2003, it starred GSA graduates Michael Jibson and Julia Gay in the lead roles and won the Olivier Award for Best Musical. Twelve years on current GSA third year musical theatre performers bring The Madness Musical to the Yvonne Arnaud Theatre.

Joe Casey, is a Camden lad whose life is strikingly altered by a decision made on the night of his 16th birthday. In an attempt to impress Sarah, the girl of his dreams, he breaks into a building development overlooking his home, but when the police arrive he has a choice to make and his life splits in two. ‘Good’ Joe gives himself up, while ‘Bad’ Joe scarpers leaving dream girl, Sarah, to run from the police.

Using Madness’ hit songs, including My Girl, Baggy Trousers, House of Fun and It Must Be Love, the show follows the two Joes through seven years of alternate lives.
