Both of these men were remarkable in their ability to play multiple roles. I especially enjoyed the actor who played all of the female parts. He was a hoot. As far as the story line, it seemed a bit disjointed and some of the lines and dialogue...continued

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

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.
