“The Elephant’s Graveyard” ‘is the true tale of the tragic collision of a struggling circus and a tiny town in Tennessee, which resulted in the only known lynching of an elephant. Set in September of 1916, the play combines historical fact and legend, exploring the deep-seated American craving for spectacle, violence and revenge.’
“A Christmas Tuna” is a farcical segment about the town of Tuna, Texas. Two actors play all the townspeople in Tuna, whatever the gender, which include very quick costume changes. “A Christmas Tuna” is a silly, holiday romp.
