Men on Boats is a comedy by Jaclyn Backhaus. There are four boats and ten explorers in this true(ish) story 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. Masculinity and manifest destiny meet their gender-flipped match in this hilarious and highly physical show.
In this retelling of Captain John Wesley Powell’s expedition the crewmen are always up for shooting the rapids, the breeze and edible wildlife. They hail from the United States of the mid-19th century, when assertive, unquestioning masculinity was something that stood tall and unchallenged.
Oh, and just so you know there isn’t a man in the 10-member cast of “Men on Boats,” at least not according to the strict anatomical definition.
