Written by Tim Firth and featuring the music of the band, Madness, Our House follows the story of cockney lad Joe Casey played by Cian Mc Kenna. On the night of his sixteenth birthday, an over-excited Joe takes Sarah (Ellen Mc Ateer), the girl of his dreams, out for a romantic evening. Impulsivly, he breaks into a new building development to show Sarah the view of his home estate. When the police come, Joe faces a tough decision: to run, or give himself up.
It is at this point that the story splits in two as we follow the fortunes, and misfortunes, of Good Joe, and Bad Joe. Good Joe stays, hands himself over to the police and faces imprisonment. However Bad Joe flees, leaving Sarah alone, and turning his lucky escape into a dodgy future. Bad Joe gets in with a criminal called Reecey (Wayne Metcalfe), and gets involved in crime, but eventually becomes a successful, if dishonest, businessman in property development
The two differing paths of Joe’s future are carefully watched over by his deceased father, played by Jon Clarke. and his Irish mother Kath (Eileen Gomez). His friends Emmo (Nathain Mullen) and Lewis (Finn Mc Elwain) are there alongside him for support. As are Saraha;s friends Billie (KayleithTrappe) and Angie (Lauren Mc Kenna) Good Joe fights to keep Sarah as she drifts further away from him, caught up in university life while he spends time in prison. Meanwhile Bad Joe meets Sarah once more and she is bowled over by his new, confident lifestyle. Swept away, Sarah marries Bad Joe in Vegas but soon lives to regret her decision.
Good Joe struggles to earn an honest living and must accept that Sarah has a new life and a new boyfriend. But when his beloved Casey Street is threatened with demolition, he turns to Sarah once more in her new role as a lawyer and the pair rekindle their love.
As the parallel worlds of Good and Bad Joe Casey head towards an explosive climax, we find out which decision turns out for the best.
