Men on Boats

By Jaclyn Backhaus

October 18 - November 17, 2018

Season Event

Ten volunteers chart the course of the Colorado River in Jaclyn Backhaus’ off-the-wall comedy, Men On Boats. With a one-armed captain and a loyal crew, follow the true(ish) story of the 1869 Grand Canyon expedition. This widely acclaimed and hysterical new play closes Circle’s 37th season with a splash! Will they survive the wild rapids to change the course of history?
