Based on the Graphic Novel by Alison Bechdel
Winner of multiple 2015 Tony Awards including Best Musical, Best Score, Best Book of a Musical, and winner of a New York Drama Critics’ Circle Award, Obie Award, Lucille Lortel Award, Outer Critics Circle Award, and Off-Broadway Alliance Award.
When her father dies unexpectedly, graphic novelist Alison dives deep into her past to tell the story of the volatile, brilliant, one-of-a-kind 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 sexuality, and the looming, unanswerable questions about her father’s hidden desires. Fun Home is a refreshingly honest, based on a true story, wholly original musical about seeing your parents through grown-up eyes.
