This hilarious parody of small town morals and mores examines the upstanding and ridiculous citizens of Tuna, Texas. The long-running Off Broadway hit features two actors creating the entire population of Tuna in a tour de farce of quick-change artistry. Michael P. Murphy and Sam Slack, after 45 years of making theatre together, reprise the roles they made famous in the Berkshires over the past several years.
Tuna, Texas proudly boasts that it is the third smallest town in the Lone Star state and is home to some of the wackiest local characters around. All the local business that is fit to talk about hits the airwaves on Tuna’s local radio station, shining a spotlight on the fine upstanding citizens and their small-town ways of dealing with life. The two actors portray over 20 of Tuna’s crazy characters, complete with costume changes and character flips that will amaze and astound audiences. Enjoy one day in the life of Tuna, Texas!
