A young artist gets an eyeful -- and then some -- when she returns home to paint a double portrait of her parents in Painting Churches, the Pulitzer-nominated play from Tina Howe (Pride's Crossing). In an addition to the portrait, Mags (the daughter) is on hand to help mom and dad, both Boston Brahmins reduced to living on beans, move from their Beacon Hill home to more modest digs out on Cape Cod. But keeping them still for the portrait -- while moving them on to the next stage of their lives -- reveals a great deal about her parents ... and about herself. Now, after patiently waiting for the rights to finally become available, the Gallery Theatre presents a fresh production of this funny and poignant play. Learn More

A funny play that also had its touching and serious moments. It seemed like we were peering into the actual living room for this slice of life. There is quite a bit of comedy and some plot twists to remind you that you were watching something that was written to entertain as well as to provide insight into the challenges of Jewish grandparents on the East Coast trying to adopt their distant grandson from California.
It is suitable for people of all ages, and I'd recommend that families watch it together, as many of the themes are familiar people of all ages.

After losing his parents, Jesús goes to live with his estranged grandparents – the Weismans. Two different cultures – and not just because he’s Hispanic and they’re Jewish!
A hysterical comedy with a great deal of heart, join the Weismans as they begin a new chapter in their life. Along with wacky neighbors, insane social workers and a seemingly impossible situation, Jesús and the Weismans is sure to leave audiences with a smile on their face and a warmth in their heart.
