Directed by B. Michael Quale     Assisted by Bobbie Mendro.

Entertainment, Inc.! presents the first ever Downstage Proction.  Twenty-five characters appear in Tuna, Texas- "The 3rd Smallest Town".  They are some of the finest, upstanding citizens.  The play is affectionate comment on small-town, Southern life and attitudes but also a withering satire of same. The audience will explode with laughter from this clever, inventive, fun and downright wild comedy.
