Greater Tuna

By Jaston Williams, Joe Sears and Ed Howard
November 11 – December 19, 2010
Directed by Tony Caselli 

Meet Arles Struvie, Thurston Wheelis, Aunt Pearl, Petey Fisk, Phineas Blye and Rev. Spikes, just some of the upstanding citizens of Tuna, the third smallest town in Texas, where the Lion’s Club is too liberal and Patsy Cline never dies. The eclectic band of citizens that make up this town are portrayed by only two performers, making this satire on life in rural America even more delightful as they depict all of the inhabitants of Tuna — men, women, children and animals. This hilarious off-Broadway hit, a love-letter to small town mores, qualities and quirks, takes you through a typical day in the life of Tuna and its most whimsical denizens. Few shows have sustained the longevity and popularity that Greater Tuna has enjoyed over the years.

“… as clever as it is entertaining… ” ~ Variety

“This is a testament to two remarkable actors, to masters of laughter, and to the home in the heart of us all, a home of quaint, loud, ridiculous, dear people – our kith and kin, us – a home they named Tuna.” ~ The Austin Chronicle
