Program

Men On Boats by Jaclyn Backhaus.

Ten explorers. Four boats. One Grand Canyon. Men on Boats is the true(ish) history of the first government-sanctioned expedition of the Colorado River through the Grand Canyon in 1869, complete with a one-armed captain and a crew of insane yet loyal volunteers.The humor and pathos of the play emerge in the portrayal of cis-gender white male bluster and bravado by artists who do not identify as such and who illuminate and undercut clichés of the archetypal hero and adventurer.
