The Majestic Theater continues the celebration of its 20th season of live theater with the presentation of “Painting Churches,” a contemporary drama by Tina Howe.

Winner of both the John Gassner Award and Best Off-Broadway Play, ‘Painting Churches’ is set in a Beacon Hill townhouse owned by Fanny and Gardner Church. The play starts with them planning to move to a beach home on Cape Cod. Their daughter, Mags, an artist who lives in New York, arrives to help — and to paint their portrait.

Cast members include Ellen Colton (Fanny Church), Anderson Matthews (Gardner Church) and Eve Passeltiner (Margaret Church).

The play is directed by Rand Foerster.

Tickets start at $25 and are available by calling or visiting the box office Monday through Friday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Saturday 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Call 413-747-7797 for more information or visit www.majestictheater.com.
