Meet Alison at three stages of her life.
Memories of her 1970s childhood in a funeral home merge with her college love life and her coming out. Looking back on her complex relationship with her father, Alison finds they had more in common than she ever knew...
Based on the graphic novel of the same name, “Fun Home” follows Alison Bechdel (a 40-something lesbian cartoonist) as she explores key moments of her past, watching herself as a child and a teenager grappling with her sexuality. Following the death of her father, Alison begins looking through a box of her father’s old belongings. With each item she finds, she reflects on stories of her childhood growing up in a funeral home and throughout her teenage years at college. Through the different stages in her life, the story follows her discovering her own sexuality as well as navigating her complicated relationship with her closeted father.
After winning the Tony Award for Best Musical during its Broadway run, critics have been equally enthralled by the London production, with The Independent calling it “a groundbreaking masterpiece.” With music by Jeanine Tesori and book and lyrics by Lisa Kron, “Fun Home” is a funny, intimate, and moving exploration of family relationships.
The musical is based on the real life experience of Alison Bechdel, who wrote the acclaimed 2006 novel.
The London production of Fun Home made history by having the first lesbian protagonist in a musical on the London stage.
Lisa Kron and Jeanine Tesori’s witty and poignant music and lyrics led to them becoming the first female writing team to win the Tony Award for Best Score.
