A groundbreaking new musical
After smash-hit seasons on Broadway and in London, Fun Home comes to Sydney in a soaring brand-new production. Rescheduled from our 2020 season, we’re thrilled to announce that musical legend Marina Prior will be appearing in 2021.
Winner of three Tony Awards including Best Musical and Best Original Score, and a finalist for the 2014 Pulitzer Prize for Drama, Fun Home has been hailed as a “beautiful, heartbreaker of a musical” (New York Times) and “one of the best new musicals of our era” (LA Times). Fun Home is a heartfelt story about coming out and coming of age based on Alison Bechdel’s pivotal graphic novel.
After the unexpected death of her father, Alison is forced to confront his secrets that come to light. Shifting between past and present, we meet Alison, a successful graphic novelist; college-age Alison on the cusp of self-discovery; and precocious child Alison, who plays in coffins instead of sandboxes in the family’s Bechdel Funeral Home.
Directed by Dean Bryant, Fun Home has laughs, drama and great tunes in spades. Don’t miss this chance to see one of the hottest musicals to come out of the US in a decade.
