Men on Boats

March 16 – 18, 2023
Harold Prince Theatre
Penn Student Shows

The “true” version of history always depends on who is telling it. Men on Boats by Jaclyn Backhaus is the true(ish) history of an 1869 expedition along the Colorado River with ten explorers and four boats. Historically, this expedition was undertaken by ten cis white men. This unpredictable and comedic play will be told by anyone but.
