Fun Home

August 3–September 18, 2022

Behind closed doors there’s a different story.

Fun Home takes you on a reflective journey of love, loss and family. Alison looks back on her life and struggles with her closeted father’s choice to end his life. She knows this struggle firsthand after coming out herself. Through the eyes of Alison, we begin to see how our differences bring us together. And while it may seem a picture-perfect family on the outside, BEHIND CLOSED DOORS THERE’S A DIFFERENT STORY.

Suggested for ages 13+ for some adult language and references to adult sexual content and suicide
