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

In this Award-winning musical with the melodious styles of 1960s rock and roll, doo-wop and early Motown, a hapless florist shop worker, Seymour, finds a mysterious plant. As the plant begins to flourish and thrive, so does the flower shop’s business. Seymour quickly develops the confidence needed to successfully court the woman he desires — his co-worker Audrey — and together they begin to pursue their dreams. However, the audience soon realizes that Seymour is just a pawn in this paranormal plant’s diabolical scheme. This fun cult classic features the beloved and well-known songs “Suppertime,” “Somewhere That’s Green,” and “Suddenly Seymour.”
