A search-and-rescue pilot on the trail of a missing girl confronts her own childhood abandonment in the acclaimed drama Tongue of a Bird. Written by Ellen McLaughlin (A Narrow Bed) and full of poetic language, Tongue of a Bird is an affecting meditation on mothers and daughters, loss and identity. Emotionally wounded Maxine returns to her childhood home in the Adirondacks to search for Charlotte, a missing 12-year-old girl. Meanwhile, plagued by nightmares and fragmented memories of her mother, who committed suicide, Maxine goes on a journey of self-realization. The Seattle Times called a previous production of Tongue of a Bird "emotionally powerful ... and intensely satisfying." Learn More

Superbly acted! The three actors must be among the most accomplished in the Boston area. As performed, the play turned out, surprisingly, to have a great many funny moments, though the director himself described it (during the talk back after the show) as a funny tragedy. I'm glad I saw it and would recommend it to everyone as a wonderful theatrical experience.
Quotes & Highlights
- "It’s an actor’s dream, a nonstop cross-fire of crackling language." --<em>Newsweek</em>
- <em>"‘ART’</em> belongs to a tradition that once flourished on Broadway but is seldom represented there these days: the sleek, pleasant comedy of manners with an intellectual veneer that allows audiences to relax at the theater." —<em>The New York Times</em>
From the playwright of God of Carnage
This intelligent and witty Tony Award-winning play by Yasmina Reza asks the question, “What does our taste in art say about who we are as individuals?” When Serge, a novice art collector, asks his two friends to view his newly acquired work of art, this “priceless” piece tests their fifteen-year friendship and causes them to validate their self-worth.
