St Peter's College Production 2017


St Peter's College is proud to announce its College Production for 2017 is:

 

The story follows Camden lad Joe Casey who, on the night of his 16th birthday, makes a decision that will change his life. Trying to impress Sarah, the girl of his dreams, Joe breaks into a building development overlooking his home on Casey Street. But things take a turn for the worse as the police turn up. Joe’s life splits into two; the Good Joe who stays and gives himself up and Bad Joe who flees and leaves Sarah to run from the police.
Our House follows the two paths that Joe’s life could take after that fateful night; one path means a criminal record and social exclusion, while the other will lose him the girl that he loves. Over a period of seven years and two alternative lives Joe deals with the consequences of that night. Whilst one Joe fights to keep Sarah, the other is marrying her in a glitzy Vegas wedding and, ultimately, while Good Joe fights to save his house on Casey Street, Bad Joe is determined to demolish it with tragic consequences. All this is watched over by Joe’s deceased father, who pulls the two stories together.

Joe Casey, Baritone/Tenor (C3-G4)

Emmo & Lewis, Baritone/Tenor (C3-E4)

Joe’s best friends. Always up for a laugh, but dead serious when it comes to saving Casey Street. Lewis is the most sensible of the pair, looking after a more simple-minded Emmo. They are typical ‘Landon Lads’: entrepreneurial, outgoing, and always up for a drink.
