Comedic Play: Men on Boats

The comedic play Men on Boats is a true(ish) history of an 1869 expedition navigating the Colorado River, led by a one-armed captain and his crew of insane yet loyal volunteers. Coastal Carolina University presents Men on Boats, in the Edwards Black Box Theater on campus in Conway. Director Monica Bell, associate professor and coordinator of recruitment in the Department of Theatre, has cast this production with diversity and gender fluidity in mind, upending the expectations of Western America during this time period. Evening performances are April 2nd through 4th and April 8th through 10th at 7:30 p.m.; matinees are April 4th and 11th at 3 p.m.
