University Theatre presents: Men on Boats

University Theatre presents: Men on Boats

By Jaclyn Backhaus

Directed by Gina Sandi-Diaz

March 24 - April 01, 2023

Ten explorers. Four boats. One Grand Canyon. “Men on Boats” is the true(ish) history of an 1869 expedition where a one-armed captain and an insane yet loyal crew set out to chart the course of the Colorado River. Inspired by John Wesley Powell’s actual travel logs, Backhaus’s nimble and ingenious script is provocative, laugh-out-loud theatre, performed by a diverse, female-identifying cast who infuse America’s historic myths of male conquest with a sly blast of satire.

A Fresno Premiere!
