SAN MARCOS — The Southwest Texas State University Department of Theatre and Dance presents Ellen McLaughlin’s contemporary drama, Tongue of a Bird, Feb. 18-22 at 7:30 p.m., and Feb. 23 at 2 p.m.

The show will take place on the main stage of the Theatre Center on the SWT campus. Tickets are $10 for the general public, $5 for students.

Tongue of a Bird features Maxine, a search and rescue pilot known for her ability to “see things” that most people don’t.
