Fun Home is a fresh, daring new musical based on the acclaimed graphic novel by Alison Bechdel.

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.
