The 2003 Olivier Award-winning musical OUR HOUSE will be produced by Immersion Theatre Company and Damien Tracey Productions and tour the UK from 10th August – 25th November 2017. Featuring the music of ska music pioneers Madness and starring Linda Nolan, OUR HOUSE will be welcoming audiences into the house of fun nationwide.

 

Tim Firth, the writer of smash hits Calendar Girls, Kinky Boots and OUR HOUSE, said: “Madness are unique in that they wrote songs about home and hearth, about growing up, never growing up, having and not having, rising and falling. They came from London but they spoke to every corner of the nation, and they certainly spoke to me, growing up in the North West. All this they did undercover of songs that fooled you into thinking they were just catchy, danceable and funny. This quality is for me at the heart of what musical theatre should aim to be. In a sense, Madness started writing a musical twenty five years ago. It was colourful, truthful, vibrant, witty and universal. It was just up to me to find it.”

 

Linda Nolan said: “I couldn’t be happier about playing Kath Casey in OUR HOUSE. I’ve always loved Madness’s music. It spreads warmth throughout the soul, and finds joy in the everyday and ordinary. It’s a perfect partner to Tim’s wonderfully madcap story of love and locals.”
