The NOLA Project presents MEN ON BOATS
Written by Jaclyn Backhaus / Directed by Shannon Sindelar
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 create team of “men” are all played by women.
