Originally performed by its playwrights, Greater Tuna comments on small-town Southern life with equal doses of satire and affection. Just two men portray the diverse citizenry of Tuna, the fictional "third-smallest" town in Texas, and one that’s populated by darkly bizarre personalities. The colorful roster of over 20 characters includes Vera Carp—Vice President of the Smut-Snatchers of the New Order, drunk UFOlogist R.R. Snavely, and Yippy, a dog whose annoying bark makes him a tough sell to prospective adopters. All of these offbeat denizens have contributed to the play’s immense popularity over the years; since 1981, Greater Tuna has spawned three sequels and was even performed at the White House for President George H.W. Bush.
