Men on Boats

SEPTEMBER 8 - OCTOBER 7, 2017
Boston Premiere
Written by Jacklyn Backhaus
 Directed by Dawn M. Simmons

Men on Boats is a rollicking adventure tale brought thrillingly to life by a gender-bending cast of diverse performers who use carefully exaggerated theatrics to tell the story of an actual 1869 expedition to chart the Colorado River. Comical but never camp, pointed but never political, this rousing historical saga is a provocative meditation on gender and historical memory that offers a new lens through which to view our shared past.
