A group of the usual British murder-mystery types gather for a weekend retreat at the sumptuous country estate of the esteemed Lady Somerset. Suddenly, someone dies of poison! Well, of course. Oh, what fun! But wait … Her Ladyship refuses to summon the police! She says she won't go through all this again. Is this actually just another formulaic, all-too-predictable mystery story? Or is it something diabolically … different? A Christie parody with a twist.
In this hilarious sequel to Greater Tuna, it's Christmas in the third smallest town in Texas. Local radio personalities report on various Yuletide activities, including the hot competition in the annual lawn display contest. Many colorful Tuna denizens join in the holiday fun. Audiences who have and who have not seen Greater Tuna will enjoy this laugh-filled evening.
