About Men on Boats

Jaclyn Backhaus’ acclaimed play reenacts the legendary 1869 Powell Expedition to map the Colorado River, but with a twist — the rugged white men are all played by a diverse cast of female and non-binary actors. The ironic, often comic result explores both the West’s mighty river and the imagined new world as created by our legends. The result triggers the question, “Who and what has our ‘America’ left out?”
