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. Inspired by the travel logs of John Wesley Powell, the real expedition’s leader, Men on Boats is a blend of adventure, history, dramedy and satire. The characters run rapids, name mountains after themselves and test the limits of human endurance as they set out to chart the expanding territory of the young United States spurred on by Manifest Destiny. This show is directed by Jane B. Jones and is rate PG-13
