Men on Boats

Essential Season

Jan 18 - Feb 15, 2020

Men on Boats
By Jaclyn Backhaus | Directed by Denise Burson Freestone

“A thrilling, gender-flipped slice of manifest destiny.”
--
Time Out New York

Ten explorers. Four boats. One Grand Canyon. Men on Boats is the true(ish) history of an 1869 expedition when a one-armed captain and an insane yet loyal crew set out to chart the course of the Colorado River. Inspired by John Wesley Powell’s actual travel logs, Backhaus’s nimble and ingenious script is provocative, laugh-out-loud theatre, performed by a diverse cast of women who infuse America’s historic myths of male conquest with a sly blast of satire. With the speed and force of white-water rapids, this off-Broadway sensation creates perilous canyons and death-defying cliffs out of sheer imagination, shaping an innovative and innately theatrical experience.

Running Time: 2 hours including 1, 15-minute intermission.
