Greater Tuna, by Ed Howard, Joe Sears & Jaston Williams
The season wraps with an all-time comic favorite, Greater Tuna, by Ed Howard, Joe Sears and Jaston Williams. Silverthorne's production re-visits this send-up of small-town life in rural Texas to look at what makes us all so endlessly and incurably obsessed with each other's personal foibles. Sharp and satirical, Greater Tuna is a truly hilarious antidote for depression in these complicated times.
Greater Tuna runs October 5-7, 12-14 @ 7:30 pm; October 14 matinee @ 2 pm.
