When her father dies unexpectedly, graphic novelist Alison Bechdel 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 college years and 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. An unforgettable and groundbreaking musical, FUN HOME explores the haunting pull of memory and the power it has to alternately destroy or shape, our identity. By Lisa Kron, Jeanine Tesori (Violet) and Alison Bechdel, this 2015 hit Broadway musical was nominated for 12 Tony Awards, winning 5, including Best Musical, Best Original Score, and Best Book of a Musical.
