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.
