FEATURED EVENTS

Greater Tuna

What do Arles Struvie, Thurston Whellis, Aunt Pearl, Petey Fisk, Phinease Blye, and Rev. Spikes have in common? In this hilarious send-up of small-town morals and moreas, they are all among the upstanding citizens of Tuna, Texas. The day in Tuna, the third smallest town in Texas, begins—as usual—with Thurston Wheelis and Arles Struvie at the microphones of Radio OKKK, broadcasting at a big 275 watts. Tuna’s citizens parade across the stage in all their outrageous and irreverent glory, commenting on life, politics, and what makes them (and sometimes us) tick. Winner of the Tony Award for Best Play.
