About Painting Churches: Finalist 1984 Pulitzer Prize in Drama! Gardner and Fanny Church are preparing to move out of their Beacon Hill town house to their summer cottage on Cape Cod. Gardner, once a famous poet, is now retired. He slips in and out of senility as his wife Fanny valiantly tries to keep them both afloat. They have asked their daughter, Mags, to come home and help them move. Mags agrees, on condition that she be allowed to paint their portrait. She is now on the verge of artistic celebrity herself and hopes, by painting her parents, to reconcile longstanding family conflicts.
Press: “Beautifully written. . . . 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
