Summary

Graphic novelist Alison dives deep into her past to tell the story of her volatile, brilliant, and one-of-a-kind father whose temperament and secrets defined her family and her life. Alison relives her unique childhood of 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, wholly original musical about seeing your parents through grown-up eyes. This musical is also a critical smash, having won numerous awards and accolades including the 2015 Tony for Best New Musical.
