Writer/director Jaston Williams brings his cross-section of life in the “third-smallest town in Texas” to the Tobin this week as part of the latest tour of Greater Tuna. A hit since its premiere in Austin in the early ’80s, Greater Tuna sends up outmoded thinking without malice in its affectionate portrait of a town in which “the Lion’s Club is too liberal and Patsy Cline never dies.” Like a countrified Canterbury Tales, the show moves across a tableau of characters that range from small-town radio disc jockeys to God-fearing members of the town’s morality police, the “Smut Snatchers.” For many, Greater Tuna evokes all-too-familiar childhood trips to visit elderly relatives in the middle of nowhere, but this recognition isn’t required to get a kick out of the show, which this time around stars Ryan H. Bailey, Tim Leavon and Will Mercer.
