Our House - March 2020

Our House - March 2013


Joe Casey, 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, he breaks into a building site overlooking his home on Casey Street, which is owned by Mr 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. Good Joe is sent to a 'correctional facility'. On his release, he struggles to make ends meet and convinces himself that he is an embarrassment to all who care about him – especially Sarah, whose new college lifestyle reading law is complicated by Callum, a fellow student. In an effort to keep up with this guy, Good Joe is beguiled by his 'mate' Reecey into helping stage a break in. He is caught and sent down. Meanwhile, Bad Joe has lost Sarah, but is making a success of a career using his breaking and entering skills to install security systems, which he then teaches his lowlife 'mate' Reecey to breach. His efforts soon earn him enough money to start his own property business where he attracts the attention of Mr Pressman. Now a successful businessman, he is able to swan back into Sarah's life. Three years later, at 21, Bad Joe and Sarah get married in Vegas, while Good Joe is leaving prison, forced to sleep rough in a second-hand car he bought all those years ago. At this point, Good Joe and Bad Joe's worlds start to collide. Mr Pressman has decided to 'redevelop' Camden by demolishing Casey Street – except Joe's mum Kath refuses to leave. Good Joe vows to save the house. Bad Joe, meanwhile, is called on by Mr Pressman to help destroy the house in a strong arm tactic to get the occupant to move out. How will the Good Joe and Bad Joe stories end?
