Winner of five Tony Awards® including Best Musical, FUN HOME is based on cartoonist Alison Bechdel’s best-selling memoir. This refreshingly honest, unforgettable and groundbreaking piece explores the haunting pull of memory and the power it has to alternately destroy or coalesce, our identity.
When her father dies unexpectedly, 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.
