Adapted from Alison Bechdel’s graphic novel/memoir of the same name, Fun Home chronicles Bechdel’s attempt to navigate her sexuality and her father’s untimely death while also grappling with the revelation that the man she thought she knew had troubling secrets roiling just under the surface.
The heady material doesn’t pull its punches, and it’s hard to imagine it could, but it translates to the stage as a poignant rumination on family and self. Molly Cox directs Shani Hadjian and Daniel McKeever in the Public Theater’s production.
