25 – 27 JULY 2019
THE HAYMARKET, BASINGSTOKE
Our House was performed again in 2019, having first been performed in 2011. The show also marked the directing debut of John Eddie, whose normal position was to be found on stage right as Deputy Stage Manager!
The show tells the story of Joe Casey who, whilst trying to impress his girlfriend Sarah, on the night of his 16th birthday, breaks into a new building plot to show her the view of the town. However, the police arrive and Joe must make a decision – does he run or does he stay to face the music? The storyline then splits into two as we follow ‘Good Joe’ who stays, and ‘Bad Joe’, who flees. One path means a criminal record and social exclusion, the other will lose him the girl that he loves. Over a period of 7 years and two alternative lives, Joe deals with the consequences of that single moment. Whilst one Joe fights to save his house on Casey Street, the other is determined to demolish it, with tragic consequences.
NODA (National Operatic and Dramatic Arts) South East awarded this production an Accolade of Musical Excellence.
