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

- [<em>Collected Stories</em>] digs into its engaging tale of aesthetics and ethics with intelligence and sharp, literate humor. --The New York Times
Ruth Steiner, a critically acclaimed, seasoned author, takes her student, Lisa, under her wing. What begins as a mentorship flourishes into a deeper maternal friendship. When Lisa becomes a much-admired published writer and uses Ruth’s secretive life story for her own novel, the balance of power shifts and the boundaries of their relationship is called into question. Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Donald Margulies challenges audiences to answer the questions: Does your story belong to you? Does someone else have the right to tell your story?
