When her father dies unexpectedly, graphic novelist Alison dives deep into the 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 question about her father’s hidden desires. Winner of 3 Tony’s and multiple critic’s awards, “Fun Home” is a refreshingly honest, wholly original musical about seeing your parents through grown up eyes.

Ten strangers are summoned to a remote island. All that the guests have in common is a wicked past they’re unwilling to reveal and a secret that will seal their fate. For each has been marked for murder. As the weather turns and the group is cut off from the mainland, the bloodbath begins and one by one they are brutally murdered in accordance with the lines of a sinister nursery rhyme. One of Christie’s darkest tales and a masterpiece of dramatic construction, its growing sense of dread and unfaltering tension will keep you guessing to the very end.
