Ethel M. Barber Theater
30 Arts Circle Drive, Evanston


When her father dies unexpectedly, graphic novelist Alison dives deep into her 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 questions about her father’s hidden desires. A Tony Award winner for “Best Musical,” FUN HOME is a refreshingly honest, wholly original musical about seeing your parents through grown-up eyes.

“A rare beauty, extraordinary and heart-gripping.” – The New York Times
“Exquisite. An emotional powerhouse.” – Chicago Tribune
