In Tina Howe’s prize-winning comedy Painting Churches, artist Mags Church returns home to paint a portrait of her aging parents while she still has them around … but her canvas may not be big enough, nor her colors varied enough, to capture all the passion, poetry, outrage, and zest of Fanny and Gardner Church.
An Obie winner and Pulitzer Prize finalist, the play has been described by The New York Times as “beautifully written. . . . A theatrical family portrait that has the shimmer and depth of Renoir portraits.”
