This production may not be suitable for young audiences as it includes mature content.

Seating will be limited due to social distancing so reserving tickets is encouraged.

When her father dies unexpectedly, graphic novelist Alison Bechdel dives deep into her past to tell the story of the volatile, brilliant, one-of-a-kind man 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 looming, unanswerable questions about her father’s hidden desires.

The production is under the direction of Joshua Robinson, assistant professor of musical theatre at Southwestern College.

Admission charge is $12 for adults, $6 for students, $10 for seniors (65+), and SC students and employees are free. For tickets or other information, call (620) 229-6328.
