Men  on Boats

with SpeakEasy Stage Company

by Jacklyn Backhaus

directed by Dawn 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 led by John Wesley Powell to chart the Colorado River. 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.
