National Youth Music Theatre presents

Our House

Book by Tim Firth, Music & Lyrics by Madness
22 - 24 AUG 2024

Ticket Prices:
£35 Standard | £28 Concession | £110 Family Ticket * | £72 Season Pass**


OUR HOUSE with music and lyrics by the iconic British band Madness (with one song, It Must Be Love, written by Labi Siffre), and book by playwright Tim Firth is based in 1980s Camden Town. It tells the story of London lad Joe Casey, who, on the night of his sixteenth birthday, takes Sarah, the girl of his dreams, out on their first date. The story then splits into two different paths that Joe could follow.

Featuring a collection of top hits by Madness including House of Fun, Baggy Trousers, Driving in my Car, It Must Be Love and of course Our House, this show is a modern British classic and one we are proud to present, particularly as National Youth Music Theatre, like Madness, are soon to celebrate their 50th anniversary!
