About The Show

Our House - “A place of heart and hearth which you are never sad to go back

to” - will mark it's 10th anniversary with a celebratory West End gala concert at

the Savoy Theatre in aid of Help for Heroes on Sunday 11th November.

Madness frontman, Suggs (who will play Joe's dad) and many original West

End cast members are reunited to celebrate with such Madness hits as Our

House, Baggy Trousers, My Girl, Embarrassment, The Sun and The Rain,

Driving In My Car, The Wings of a Dove, Night Boat to Cairo and the all-time

classic, It Must Be Love.

First presented at the Cambridge Theatre in October 2002 and the Olivier

Award winner for Best New Musical, Our House combines a witty and

brilliantly-crafted romantic tale, written by Tim Firth (Calendar Girls, Kinky

Boots, The Wedding Video), with the energetic and often madcap songs of

Madness. Set in Camden, Our House is a fast moving romantic comedy

which tells the story of Joe Casey, his mates, his girlfriend Sarah and the night

he commits a petty crime to impress her. It follows the two paths his life would

take if he stays to face the music when the police appear on the scene or if

makes a run for it.

Our House's original director, Matthew Warchus (Matilda, Ghost The Musical,

Lord of the Rings), has been reunited with the show's designer, Rob Howell

(Matilda, Ghost The Musical, Private Lives), for this not to be missed one night

only gala concert.

“What a great pleasure it is to be revisiting one of my all-time favourite projects

for this charity concert version. I can't wait to unpack it again. It must be love,

indeed," said Matthew Warchus.

“Our House remains one of the proudest achievements of my career, and one

of my happiest collaborations,” said Tim Firth.
