New Orleans is a travelogue written during Singapore's COVID-19 circuit breaker about a trip to the American city in October 2019. A Singaporean writer and an Argentinian playwright-director wander the streets of the French Quarter, staying sober in a party town, singing on Bourbon Street, refraining from gambling in casinos and dodging alligators in the bayou. It all ends with a gate-crash of Tennessee Williams’ house. Along the way, some observations are made of art, friendship and being alive.
