Adelphi Department of Theatre students present a thrilling and widely acclaimed new play by Jaclyn Backhaus.

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 crew of insane yet loyal volunteers set out to chart the course of the Colorado River. In this very modern take on a very old American adventure story, audiences and performers alike get a chance to question American history and who gets to tell the story of our shared past. Be prepared for a rollicking and rousing adventure story looking at a historical moment through a different lens.
