MEN ON BOATS is the tale of ten men, four boats, and two great rivers, told on stage entirely without boats, rivers … or men! Pack your gear for this 21st-century telling of 19th-century American explorer and one-armed Civil War veteran John Wesley Powell, who assembles a brawny band of soldiers, trappers, and adventurers to explore the waterways of the American West. Inspired by Powell’s actual travel log from 1869, Jaclyn Backhaus’s nimble and ingenious script is provocative, laugh-out-loud theater, performed by a cast of women who infuse America’s legends of male conquest with a sly blast of subtext.
