NVA will take you on a grand adventure with the Regional Premiere of Jaclyn Backhaus’ MEN ON BOATS. This fantastical comedy recreates John Wesley Powell’s ten-man 1869 exploratory expedition into the Grand Canyon with one twist: all of the roles are played by a diverse group of San Diego’s finest non-male actors.

MEN ON BOATS The Gender-Bent Historical Adventure Comedy by Jaclyn Backhaus and Directed by Melissa Coleman-Reed. Featuring Executive Artistic Director Kristianne Kurner as John Wesley Powell
