Winner of the 2015 Tony Award for Best Musical!
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. Fun Home is a refreshingly honest, wholly original musical about seeing your parents through grown-up eyes. Features language, sexuality and LGBTQ+ themes.

A new work by two of the region’s most exciting playwrights – Mike
Wiley and Howard L. Craft – explores the pressures, hopes, and aspirations of a young man coming of age in a southern city in the 1980s.Raised by a devoted mother in the projects, the main character tries to pursue his path in the midst of obstacles large and small, and discovers his own power and strength. The play is a meditation on an African-American lower-working-class family in pursuit of an American dream that always seems to exist just beyond their grasp.
