Big Dawg Productions Non-Profit Theatre: Men on Boats


( Wed., Aug. 14, 2019 - Sun., Sep. 1, 2019 )

Cape Fear Playhouse, 613 Castle St., Wilmington, NC 28401

Program

    

Another Wilmington debut. 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 a crew of insane yet loyal volunteers set out to chart the course of the Colorado River. This astounding play casts all women to portray these intrepid conquerors of nature, in a wonderful blend of comedy, adventure, history and movement.  An exhilarating take on the first official U.S. government-sponsored passage through the Grand Canyon, told through a brand new lens, as well as an exploration of how we look at history, and who we allow to tell it.

Cost

$15 - $5
