Painting Churches - 2012 - Off-Broadway

$59.75

In Painting Churches, we meet the Church family: Fanny and Gardner. They are packing, about to move to a beach home on Cape Cod. Gardner is a poet and Fanny is from a "fine old family." Their daughter Margaret, an artist who lives in New York, has arrived to help them pack and paint their portrait.



This will be the first New York revival of Painting Churches, the smash hit comedy from the author of Coastal Disturbances and Pride's Crossing. In his review in the New York Times, Frank Rich wrote, “In Painting Churches, her beautifully written play, Tina Howe has dramatized an illuminating connection between life and art. And like the best paintings, Painting Churches rewards repeated viewings."
