Young Vic announces casting for ‘Fun Home’

The Young Vic has announced principal casting for its forthcoming production of the five-time Tony award-winning musical Fun Home, which runs in the Main House from 18 June to 1 September, 2018.

Based on Alison Bechdel’s 2006 graphic novel of the same name, Fun Home features music by Jeanine Tesori and book and lyrics by Lisa Kron.

Directed by Sam Gold in his Young Vic debut, the production will star Kaisa Hammarlund as Alison, Eleanor Kane as Medium Alison, Jenna Russell as Helen, Ashley Samuels as Roy, Mark and Jeremy, Cherrelle Skeete as Joan and Zubin Varla as Bruce, Alison’s father.

Fun Home explores the memories of Alison’s uniquely complicated family at three different stages in her life – her volatile, brilliant, enigmatic father, mother and brothers – that connect with her in surprising new ways.

Fun Home is a refreshingly honest, wholly original musical about seeing your parents through grown-up eyes.

The final show in David Lan’s last season as Artistic Director of the Young Vic, Fun Home will feature choreography by Danny Mefford, set and costume design by David Zinn, lighting by Ben Stanton, sound by Kai Harada, music supervision by Chris Fenwick, and music direction by Nigel Lilley.
