The fictitious town of Tuna, Texas, located in west Texas, about half-way between San Angelo and Hell. Though the action takes place in the early eighties, nothing has changed since then.
“Greater Tuna” was originally produced in 1981 in Austin, Texas, by authors, Jaston Williams, Joe Sears, and Ed Howard. The play’s stars, Williams and Sears, played all twenty characters and Howard directed. One year after its premiere, Greater Tuna opened Off-Broadway, ran for over a year and went on to tour major theaters all over America and spots overseas for the next thirty some years. It became one of the most produced plays in American theater history. It will be performed in its original form.
