Fun Home is a musical based on the graphic novel by Alison Bechdel, with music by Jeanine Tesori, and book and lyrics by Lisa Kron.

As successful cartoonist, Alison Bechdel, works on her upcoming memoir she takes the audience on a journey through two important phases of her life. We find her as a child, struggling to relate to her closeted father, and searching for answers to complex questions. As a budding college student Alison begins to acknowledge her sexuality upon meeting the out-and-proud Joan.

The story follows Small, Medium, and present-day Alison as their journeys weave into an unforgettable, universal story of love, acceptance, grief, and family.

Featuring iconic songs like, “Changing My Major,” “Ring of Keys,” and “Telephone Wire,” you don’t want to miss this ground-breaking story in our intimate setting this autumn.
