Fun Home is a musical based on Alison Bechdel's graphic novel which I saw at London's Young Vic Theatre in August 2018. If the graphic novel is the mother, the musical is a much-loved close relative—it's an exceptionally original story about the life of a family, the secrets they hold and the love they have for one another.
