 Aransas Repertory Theatre presents : Men On Boats
By Jaclyn Backhaus

Ten explorers. Four boats. One Grand Canyon. MEN ON BOATS is a true(ish) history, an anachronistic retelling of the 1869 Powell expedition when a one-armed captain and a crew of insane yet loyal volunteers set out to chart the course of the Colorado River. The twist on this show, though, is that the explorers, all men, are all portrayed by women, adding not only a fantastically funny and sometimes touching insight into the male mind, but also biting commentary that will leave men and women both laughing!
