Men on Boats

By Jaclyn Backhaus

Directed by Mark Fossen

Ten explorers. Four boats. The Grand Canyon. Men on Boats is the mostly true story of John Wesley Powell’s expedition down the tumultuous Colorado River, navigating the Grand Canyon. With an all-female cast, this play by Jacklyn Backhaus and maps more than just the lay of the land.

“[Men on Boats] is marvelously destabilizing both as history and theater. The stalwartness and selfishness of the adventurers—their cockiness and cluelessness—become biting satire when sent up by women."
—New York Magazine
