The 2015 Tony Award winner for Best Musical, Fun Home is based on Alison Bechdel’s best-selling and moving graphic memoir. When her closeted gay father dies (kills himself?) graphic novelist Alison dives deep into her past to tell the story of the volatile, brilliant man whose temperament and secrets defined her family and her life. Moving between past and present, Alison relives her unique childhood playing at the family’s Bechdel Funeral Home, her growing understanding of her own identity as a lesbian, and the looming, unanswerable questions about her father’s hidden desires.
This production contains adult themes and language including suicide.
