Men on Boats
8 PM (& Sat. 3 PM)
By Jaclyn Backhaus | Directed by Charise Greene
In 1869, John Wesley Powell led a group of 10 men down the Colorado River to chart its course. With only four boats, a month’s provisions, and plenty of moxie, these men risked life and limb, all in the name of Manifest Destiny. Based on Powell’s travel journals, this modern action adventure — performed by a cast of women — undertakes a comic and pointed exploration of American expansion.

Rattlestick Playwrights Theater
In an effort to support the vision and imagination of directors, Rattlestick is hosting its first-ever DirectorJam, a work-in-progress showing of four director-driven works. The evening will feature excerpts of work in development by directors Shadi Ghaheri, Jessi Hill, Mei Ann Teo and Em Weinstein. Ranging from choreography to storytelling to new work, this event will be a window into four directors' unique processes.

Lauded as an “an endlessly unfolding chain of highly controlled polystylism” (Boston Musical Intelligencer), Julian Wachner’s REV. 23 is an exploration of an “unpublished” new chapter of the Book of Revelation. With an audacious libretto by Cerise Lim Jacobs, this striking new production by director James Darrah takes us on a fantastical journey through the myths of our collective unconscious.
