DC Metro Theater Arts review: I left with a smile on my face, looking forward to the Christmas season.
Review by Brian Trumpeter at Inside NOVA: A Tuna Christmas opens up a can of laughter
A Tuna Christmas
is the second in a series of comedic plays (preceded by Greater Tuna
and followed by Red, White and Tuna
and Tuna Does Vegas
), each set in the fictional town of Tuna, Texas, the "third-smallest" town in the state. The trilogy was written by Jaston Williams, Joe Sears, and Ed Howard. The plays are at once an affectionate comment on small-town, Southern life and attitudes but also a withering satire of same. The plays are notable in that only a few actors play the entire cast of over twenty eccentric characters of multiple genders and various ages. A Tuna Christmas
debuted in 1989
