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

Selene, a blind woman, lives in a cave with her only friend, Callisto, an orphaned bear cub.  Their simple cave-lives are interrupted by the arrival of a stranger, Neola, who explains that the world outside has been swallowed in darkness.  Helios has disappeared from the sky and robbed the world of light.  Even fires seem to offer only cold shadows.  With no light by which to see, people have been gripped by chaos and fear and a great deal of tripping.  Neola believes she knows a path that will take her to where Helios is hiding, and help restore light to the sky.  However, she needs a guide who can help her walk the path without sight.  Selene, Callisto, and Neola venture out together to find out why the sun god disappeared and, if they find him, how to convince him to come back.
