Winner of five Tony Awards, including Best Musical. Graphic novelist Alison dives deep into her past to tell the story of the volatile and brilliant father 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 unanswered questions about her early years. A wholly original musical about seeing your parents through grown-up eyes.
