Hello, Internet, today is Monday, October 16th, and we’re circling the runway with Fun Home, so I’d better tell you about…
Sharon King-Campbell is an Ottawan-turned-Newfoundlander working as an actor, director, writer, storyteller and teacher in St. John’s, NL. Since 2007, when she graduated with her Bachelor of Fine Arts in Theatre (Acting) from Sir Wilfred Grenfell College in Corner Brook, NL, Sharon has worked in my facets of performing and literary arts.
Fun Home is a musical based on the memoir of the same name by Alison Bechdel. It's is about her Dad, who covered up his attraction to men by marrying a woman, having three children with her, and running something as close to a typical life in Pennsylvania as one can when one is a funeral director; and her own sexual discovery; and the ways in which one may have influenced the other.
