“I am happy to go anywhere The Talking Band invites me to go … I had a ball.”

The cruise ship S.S. Azure departs from New York at the end of the May, carrying 
passengers, crew, and a theatre audience, all together on the trip of a lifetime.

New Islands Archipelago is at once a tropical dream of new beginnings,  a real-estate scheme, and the accidental destination of the passengers and crew of the cruise ship S.S. Azure. Thrown together with strangers in increasingly unfamiliar surroundings, their lives are propelled forward, unfolding in ways they hadn’t imagined.
