What's on Stage? The 2023-2024 Season


by Jaclyn Backhaus
Directed by Dan Matisa

  Performances April 17-21, 2024

Ten explorers. Four boats. One Grand Canyon. A raucous adventure and the true(ish) story of an 1869 expedition by the one-armed captain John Wesley Powell and a crew of eccentric volunteers who set out to chart the course of the Colorado River. This mad, gender-bent comedy from one of our most acclaimed playwrights is, in the words of New York Magazine, "marvelously destabilizing both as history and theater,” and “biting satire when sent up by women.”

What can we say? It's the greatest love story of all, and there’s never been a better time for an immersion in the timeless poetry, passion, light and shadow that Shakespeare’s classic offers. Amid endless distractions, generational anxiety, and a deeply divided community, two young lovers risk all for something pure and true.
