Greater Tuna is the first in a series of 4 comedic plays, each set in the fictional town of Tuna, Texas, the "third-smallest" town in the state. Written by Jaston Williams, Joe Sears, and Ed Howard, the play is at once an affectionate comment on small-town, Southern life and attitudes but also a withering satire of same. The play is unique in that two men play the entire cast of over twenty eccentric characters of both genders and various ages.

by Tom Dudzick
A warm & hilarious look at 1950s Americana as the youngest member of the Pazinski family questions family values & the Roman Catholic Church. When he announces that instead of being confirmed he'd rather shop around for a more "fun" religion, all hell breaks loose!
