When her father dies unexpectedly, graphic novelist 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.
NYT Critics' Pick "[A] beautiful heartbreaker of a musical... Fun Home finds a shining clarity that lights up the night." - New York Times
“Fun Home is a thoroughly dynamic piece that is just as emotionally piercing, good-humored and enjoyable as it is sharp, focused and culturally conscious." - AmNewYork
"Fun Home is an emotional roller-coaster ride, a grippingly heartwarming story mixed with some of the most smart and joyful musical numbers presently on Broadway." - Huffington Post
"It’s unconventional grist, to be sure, and musical theater is better for it. The material is handled with such delicacy and expertise that it speaks universally about Big Things That Matter: life, love, family, surviving… Be prepared to wipe away tears." - NY Daily News
