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
