Painting Churches-A Comedic Family Drama by Tina Howe. Directed by Joseph Wright

Performance Dates: March 1, 2, 7, 8, 9, 10, 14, 15 and 16

Starring Nancy Suiter, Ted Williamson, and Teresa Rodrick On the verge of celebrity, Mags Church returns to the blue-blooded home of her childhood, and a collision of changes. Determined to capture the long-put-off portrait of her eccentric parents before they move from the house and its memories, Mags is forced to confront her complicated feelings for her hat-sporting, jabbering mother, and her absent-minded, literary father, who is now tumbling into senility. Both talent and fortitude triumph, to permit at last an aesthetically and emotionally honest rendering of the two unusual people who raised her, and of the artist herself.

"Beautifully written. . . . Tina Howe has dramatized an illuminating connection between life and art. A theatrical family portrait that has the shimmer and depth of Renoir portraits." - The New York Times "A radiant, loving and zestfully humorous play . . . distinctly Chekhovian. Howe captures the same edgy surface of false hilarity, the same unutterable sadness beneath it, and the indomitable valor beneath both." - Time Starring: Fanny Church - Nancy Suiter Gardner Church - Ted Williamson Margaret Church - Teresa Rodrick
