Comments: 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. On the way they must battle the elements, and all too often, one another. This at turns hilarious, at turns poignant play is an insightful commentary of American history turned on its head, as the entire cast and creative team of “men” are all played by women. Originally premiering in NYC at Playwright’s Horizons in 2015, this marks the first ever production of the play ! in the Am erican South. This production is supported by a generous grant from The New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Foundation and the New Orleans Arts Council/City of New Orleans.
