FUN HOME By Lisa Kron & Jeanine Tesori
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.

Four unique Southern women, all needing to escape the sameness of their day-to-day routines, are drawn together and decide it’s high time to reclaim the enthusiasm for life they’ve lost. Over the course of six months, filled with laughter, hilarious misadventures, and the occasional liquid refreshment, these middle-aged women successfully bond and find the confidence to jump start their new lives. Together, they discover lasting friendships and a renewed determination to live in the moment—and most importantly, realize it’s never too late to make new old friends.
