THE STORY: Ten explorers. Four boats. One Grand Canyon. MEN ON BOATS is the true(ish) history of an 1869 expedition when a one-armed captain and a crew of insane yet loyal volunteers set out to chart the course of the Colorado River.

MEN ON BOATS tells the story of Captain John Wesley Powell (played by Jennifer Whitcomb Oliva) and his famous exploration down the Green and Colorado Rivers. Based loosely on Powell’s journals, this grand adventure of manifest destiny is brought thrillingly to life by a diverse cast.

MARIAN, OR THE TRUE TALE OF ROBIN HOOD
by  Adam Szymkowicz
cbkDirected by Britt Byrd
A co-production with Wild Card Productions
In Belmont’s Black Box Theatre

June 29-July 8
A gender-bending, patriarchy-smashing, hilarious new take on the classic tale. Robin Hood is (and has always been) Maid Marian in disguise, and leads a motley group of Merry Men (few of whom are actually men) against the greedy Prince John. As the poor get poorer and the rich get richer, who will stand for the vulnerable if not Robin? What is the cost of revealing your true self in a time of trouble? Modern concerns and romantic entanglements clash on the battlefield and on the ramparts of Nottingham Castle. A play about selfishness and selflessness and love deferred and the fight. Always the fight. The fight must go on.
