Urdang Academy Presents Our House
28 & 29 February
A young man reaches a crossroads on his 16th birthday
Based in 1980s Camden Town, Our House 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.
In an effort to impress her with bravado, Joe breaks into a building site overlooking his home on Casey Street, which is owned by Mister Pressman, a high-end property developer. The police turn up, at which point Joe’s life splits into two: the Good Joe, who stays to help, and Bad Joe, who flees.
As part of their course, third-year graduates of Urdang Academy perform in a full-length musical. These shows are produced for performance experience and assessment, and for the students to prepare for leaving the Academy.
