This “off-the-canyon-walls funny” (Variety) voyage takes audiences on a rollicking ride through the Grand Canyon. Men on Boats hilariously retells the (mostly) true story of an 1869 expedition down the Colorado River. Between belly laughs lies a satirical interrogation of masculinity, colonialism and rugged individualism. “The tone is comic, but never cute or camp. And ultimately, you feel, the play respects its bold if fallible pioneers, in all their natural bravery and fearfulness.” (New York Times). Directed by Dr. Michelle Gibbs.
Presented by special arrangement with Broadway Licensing, LLC, servicing the Dramatists Play Service collection.
