Men on Boats at the University of Mary Washington
February 9 @ 7:30 pm - February 19 @ 2:00 pm EST$5 – $25
UMW Theatre will continue its 2022-23 season with Men on Boats by Jaclyn Backhaus. This comedy tells the story of ten adventurous men that embark on an expedition down the Colorado River. Set in 1869, this historical journey is led by John Wesley Powell, a Civil War veteran, and his crew of disparate men. As they chart a path through the great American West, their quest for fortune turns into one of satirical struggle. Playing on the real events of western migration, Men on Boats adds humor to the true challenges faced in the conquering of the Grand Canyon.
