Men On Boats

Men On Boats

Ten explorers.  Four boats.  One Grand Canyon.  The male bluster and bravado of the archetypal adventurer gets a twist as all ten men are played by women.  Based (loosely) on John Wesley Powell’s published record of the 1869 journey, “The Exploration of the Colorado River and Its Canyons,” this thrilling new play follows the one-armed explorer and his ridiculous band of followers through raging rapids of comedy.


Contains mature themes and language.
