We brought a picnic, parked across the street from the theatre and had a lovely picnic in Lincoln Park's lovely rose garden.

No bad sitting, it's a compact theater and the stage is right there a few feet away

Loads of fun. Small theatre, big laughs. What else can I say?

Amazing job of two actors creating more than a dozen characters, and doing it superbly. Very funny lines and some good laughs, plus some thought provoking scenes. Overall a very nice production.

Very entertaining. 2 actors carried the entire play!

Dress in layers because the air conditioning can be problematic.

Description

_Greater Tuna _

Directed by Richard Robert Bunker

Featuring Titus France and George Mauro

Welcome to the “third smallest town in Texas”, where the Lions Club is viewed as suspiciously liberal and Roots is pulled from the library because “it only shows one side of the slavery issue.” Yet despite Tuna’s quirky small-town politics, we see ourselves in its inhabitants’ all-too-human struggles, triumphs and foibles. Greater Tuna was performed at the White House for President George H.W. Bush (Sr.) and earned the SF Bay Area Critics Award and LA Dramalogue Award for playwright Jaston Williams. Rated PG-13 for sharp satire.
