POSTPONED (stay tuned for new date) Join Raising Resilience for a post-show discussion


Date TBD *following a 3 p.m. matinee performance of Bainbridge Performing Arts' production of "Fun Home."

Contains mature subject matter including suicide, sexual situations, and strong language.

Raising Resilience will address parenting in relation to LGBTQ+ awareness during a therapist-led, post-show discussion involving the show's cast and director. Hailed as one of Broadway’s most original musicals and the winner of 5 Tony Awards, "Fun Home" is a refreshingly honest, funny, and intimate musical about seeing one’s parents through grown-up eyes.

*The discussion will begin at 5 p.m. and is free for those who wish to attend the discussion, but are not seeing the show that day.
