“We’re on the river now, crew! There will be churning, there will be swells. Keep your bearings. Oars Up! Oars Out!” 

Ten Explorers. Four Boats. Two Casts. One Grand Canyon. Merely Players joyfully opens our new venue with Jaclyn Backhaus’s creative retelling of John Wesley Powell’s 1869 expedition. Race down the rapids with us as we gleefully spin theatrical, historical, and gender expectations into an inventive, thrilling, and humorous escapade.

No Men. No Boats. All Adventure.

 

Directed by Mona Wood-Patterson and Liz Gray. Design by Charles Ford.
