Synopsis: Greater Tuna is a play that tells a story about Tuna, Texas' third smallest town. It follows all the citizens of Tuna, all of which are hilariously portrayed by two very talented actors, Joe Sears & Jaston Williams. This film shows both the play & behind the scenes of their first ever performance outside of the US at the Edinburgh Festival in 1988

What the press would say:

"I have seen Greater Tuna in New York several times and it's even better on film. I love the whole "Prairie Home" element of it all with the backstage scenes. I haven't laughed this hard in a long time. Jaston Williams & Joe Sears give phenomenal performances (as usual) and who knew that Ed Howard could act?"
