About the play

Winner of five Tony Awards including Best Musical and Best Original Score, the Gate Theatre is proud to present the Irish Premiere of Jeanine Tesori and Lisa Kron’s Fun Home, adapted from the acclaimed graphic novel by Alison Bechdel.

After the sudden death of her father, graphic novelist Alison is forced to confront long-hidden familial secrets that come to light. Fun Home features Alison both past and present: her memories as a child playing in the family’s funeral home merge with her time as a college student coming out and finding first love, and her adult life as a successful graphic novelist.

Directed by Róisín McBrinn, Fun Home features music composed by Jeanine Tesori, with book and lyrics by Lisa Kron, and is adapted from the graphic novel by Alison Bechdel.

Fun Home is presented by arrangement with Concord Theatricals Ltd. www.concordtheatricals.co.uk

Age recommendation: 12+

Please be advised that there is strong language and themes of an adult nature.
