Winner of the 2016 Tony as Best Musical, FUN HOME is a fascinating journey through a woman’s life of discovery. Based on Alison Bechdel’s graphic novel memoir, you encounter Alison at three points in her life: as a girl, a young woman, and an adult.  Raised in a fun[eral] home, Alison enjoys the simplicity of life with two brothers (including hide-and-seek amongst the caskets), but finds life equally perplexing in

discovering her own sexuality.  We watch Alison move back and forth in time-revealing Alison to herself at the same time her father deals with his own sexuality in the funniest, warmest, most touching, and fascinating musical in years.


Mature subject matter.  Recommended for older teens and adults.
