What do Arles Struvie, Thurston Wheelis, Aunt Pearl, Petey Fisk, Phineas Blye and Rev. Spikes have in common? In this hilarious send-up of small town morals and mores, they are all among the upstanding citizens of the third smallest town in the state — Tuna, Texas.
“With the popularity of shows such as 'Duck Dynasty' and other red-neck comedies, 'Greater Tuna' will fit right into the guilty pleasures that will warm the winter months,” said the company's executive director, Mark Mannisto.
"Greater Tuna" was originally produced in 1981 in Austin, Texas, by its authors, Jaston Williams, Joe Sears and Ed Howard. The play's two actors, play all twenty characters and Howard directed.
One year after its premiere, it opened off Broadway, ran for more than a year and went on to tour major theatres all over America and spots overseas for the next 30 some years, and became one of the most produced plays in American theatre history.
Sears and Williams (the original playwrights) did command performances at the White House for President George H. W. Bush and Barbara Bush.
Tickets are $50 and include a catered meal by Helvi’s Catering.
