Sweet and Sour Secrets
And you can catch a free reading of Dale’s new play Ai Yah! Open the Door! this Friday at 6:00 pm at Lunchbox Theatre.
Ai Yah! Open The Door!
Hilarity and romance ensue when Jade Wong books a last-minute getaway, only to discover the cruise is all women. Suddenly, her questions about her own sexuality are front and centre in this wild “prequel” to the smash hit Ai Yah! Sweet & Sour Secrets!
