About This Show

Silver Spring Stage presents Painting Churches, by Tina Howe, a loving and humorous portrait of an eccentric aging couple struggling in their waning years and their artist daughter’s desire to capture them on canvas. Barry Hoffman directs.

A nominee for the 1984 Pulitzer Prize for Drama, Painting Churches reveals the illusions that family members have about one another, and the wounds that they unintentionally inflict in the process of moving on with life. Howe uses her renowned lyrical, sensitive and gently humorous language to contemplate the span of emotions, family, art, illness, and the very essence of life.
