Men on Boats

By Jaclyn Backhaus

Directed by Rebekah Lane


Ten explorers. Four boats. One Grand Canyon. Men on Boats is a true-ish retelling of the 1869 Powell expedition, when one-armed Captain John Wesley Powell and a crew of insane yet loyal volunteers set out to chart the course of the Colorado River. Jaclyn Backhaus’s celebrated play questions the myth of manifest destiny through gender-swapped colonial adventuring.
