Threshold Repertory Theatre 84 Society Street, Charleston, SC Presents: Men on Boats
Spinning historical, theatrical, and gender conventions on their heads, this subversive tale of 10 men, four boats, and two rivers contains none of the above.

Inspired by Powell’s actual travel log from 1869, Jaclyn Backhaus’s nimble and ingenious script is provocative, laugh-out-loud theater, performed by a diverse cast of women who infuse America’s historic myths of male conquest with a sly blast of subtext.
