Greater Tuna

Greater Tuna

By Joe Sears, Jaston Williams, and Ed Howard

The fictitious town of Tuna, Texas, is 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 it's authors, Jaston Williams, Joe Sears and Ed Howard. The play's stars, Williams and Sears, played all twenty characters in this hilariously disfunctional Texas town.. One year after it's premier, Greater Tuna opened Off-Broadway, ran for over a year and went on to tour major theatres all over America and spots overseas for the next thirty some years, and became one of the most produced plays in American theatre history.
