About this show

Welcome to the Bechdel family. But just what kind of family is it? Through the searching eyes of daughter Alison — age nine, 17, and then 42 — audiences meet her ever-shifting and sometimes unreliable memories of brothers, mother, and above all, her repressed father, along with recollections from the family funeral home to her coming out. Based on Bechdel's own best-selling illustrated memoir, this poignant tale harnesses every facet of music and theater to explore and unravel the mysteries of childhood and the surprising secrets that shape a life. From the composer of Caroline, or Change and the writer of 2.5 Minute Ride, Fun Home won the 2015 Tony Award for Best Musical.
