Fun Home Des Moines Tickets
Edgy and inspiring, the musical Fun Home presents the personal story of writer and artist Alison Bechdel. Told from the perspective of Alison at the ages of 10, 19 and 43, as she tries to sort out her confusing childhood and early adulthood. The story relates her joy as a 10-year-old and her efforts to understand her developing sexuality in relation to her father. As the perspective shifts between her from age 10 to age 19, she explains her anxiety “coming out” as a lesbian in college. Later she struggles to understand her feelings over the death of her father. That event reveals more to Allison that she tries to understand and she eventually watches her 10-year-old self fade from view. As she explores the mysteries of her childhood, she faces complex feelings and hopes for the future.
