Directed by Anita Dashiell-Sparks

View the Playbill

Spinning historical, theatrical and gender conventions on their heads, this subversive tale of 10 men, four boats and two rivers contains none of the above. Backhaus’ deliciously original play is the true(ish) history of an 1869 expedition, when a one-armed captain and a crew of insane yet loyal volunteers set out to chart the course of the Colorado River.
