DANGEROUS GARDENIAS: The Plays of Dalt Wonk- book launch

Join us with Dalt Wonk to celebrate the launch of his new dramatic anthology, DANGEROUS GARDENIAS: The Plays of Dalt Wonk, with a reading and signing.

A collection of plays by Dalt Wonk, but it’s more than that. DANGEROUS GARDENIAS also tells how the plays came to be written and produced. In the theater world, these anecdotes are known as “War Stories.” They are often comic—and great fun to read.


"No one conjures a more mythological French Quarter with more deftness or charm than Dalt Wonk." -- T.R. Johnson, New Orleans: A Writer's City
