Men on Boats

By Jacylyn Backaus

Studio Theatre

October 26-November 10, 2019

Spinning historical, theatrical, and gender conventions on their heads, this subversive tale of 10 men, four boats, and two rivers contains none of the above. Pack your gear for the true(ish) history 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. Laugh-out-loud theatre, performed by a diverse cast of not-men who infuse America’s historic myths of male conquest with a sly blast of subtext.
