About the Play

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 a crew of insane yet loyal volunteers set out to chart the course of the Colorado River.

“’Men on Boats’ is marvelously destabilizing both as history and theater. The stalwartness and selfishness of the adventurers – their cockiness and cluelessness – become biting satire when sent up by women.” – NY Magazine
