The NOLA Project PodPlays are a brand new way for audiences to experience the excitement of new theatre from the comfort of their home.

Extraterrestrials busk in the French Quarter. Diego pours a cup of coffee. A mailman's truck has just been stolen. And strange government agents are asking some suspicion-raising questions. ALIEN STATUS is a wild, lyrical, and hilarious new work set in New Orleans' Bywater neighborhood that skewers assumptions about race and refuge, and delivers with the one-two punch of a triple espresso.

Diego:  Alex Martinez Wallace

Hezekiah:  Khiry Armstead

Yoyo:  Keith Claverie
