Although I agree that the play bogs down in places, I felt that this was more the fault of the writing than the acting. As a mother of two daughters, I found Gutierez's portrayal of Dessa powerful and rich in restrained emotion. Tongue of a Bird is a difficult play which was well staged and acted. it's biggest fault lies in the source material, not the performance.
