Award-winning musical Our House, based on the songs of 80s chart-toppers Madness, is being revived at the Union Theatre next month.

The show, which premiered in 2002 and won an Olivier Award for Best New Musical, is written by Tim Firth (Calendar Girls).

Our House centres on Joe Casey, a boy from Camden whose life is altered by a decision made on the night of his 16th birthday. The show subsequently follows Casey through seven years of alternate lives.

It features Madness hits including "My Girl", "Baggy Trousers" and "House Of Fun".

Steven France will lead the cast of the Union production, which is directed by Michael Burgen (Loserville). Joining him will be Ailsa Davidson, Dominic Brewer, Sally Samad, Joseph Giacone, Joe Ashman, Claire Learie, Chanice Alexander-Burnett, Rhys Owen and Jay Osborne.

Joanna Bird, Alice Baker, Rachel Capp, Lauren Dinse, Reece Kerridge, Paul Flannigan and Zachary Worrall complete the cast.

Our House will run at the Union Theatre from 19 August to 12 September 2015.
