Winner of the 2015 Tony Award for Best Musical!

"My dad and I grew up in the same small Pennsylvania town.
And he was gay.
And I was gay.
And he killed himself.
And I... became a lesbian cartoonist."
—Alison Bechdel from Fun Home

Years after her father’s unexpected death, Alison comes to terms with memories of her unique childhood, growing up in the Bechdel Funeral Home. Moving between the past and present, she relives her struggles to connect with her father and her growing awareness of her own sexuality. This ground-breaking musical is funny, honest, and uplifting.
