In this hilarious sequel to Greater Tuna, it’s Christmas in the third smallest town in Texas. Radio station OKKK news personalities Thurston Wheelis and Arles Struvie report on various Yuletide activities, including hot competition in the annual lawn display contest.
In other news, voracious Joe Bob Lipsey’s production of A Christmas Carol is jeopardized by unpaid electric bills. The colorful Tuna denizens, female and male, all performed by two men, join in the holiday fun.
“A hoot.” - New York Times
“The hilarity . . . never lets up.” - Village Voice
“So funny it could make a raccoon laugh affectionately at Davy Crockett . . . It’s far too good for just Christmas.”

Love Letters by A. R. Gurney was nominated for a Pulitzer Prize for Drama. The play centers on just two characters, Melissa Gardner (Diane Chevron) and Andrew Makepeace Ladd III (Allan O’Grady Cuseo). Using the epistolary form sometimes found in novels, they sit side by side at tables and read the notes, letters and cards - in which over nearly 50 years, they discuss their hopes and ambitions, dreams and disappointments, victories and defeats - that have passed between them throughout their separated lives.
