The characters in MEN ON BOATS were historically cisgender white males. The cast should be made up entirely of people who are not. We are looking for racially diverse actors who are female-identifying, trans-identifying, gender fluid, and/or non-gender-conforming.

*In reference to the characters and casting of the show- most characters we encounter currently are on the binary and are written with he/him or she/her pronouns and you will see that in the descriptions. But however limiting the descriptions may be, our casting seeks to be as inclusive as possible and we invite the gender non-conforming, gender queer, transgender and non-binary actors to submit for the roles they most identify with. We will also list race/ ethnicity when specific to characters but are otherwise seeking all races and ethnicity. Please let us know if you have any questions, concerns or if there is any accommodation we can provide.


This play is based largely on John Wesley Powell’s journals of his 1869 expedition, published as The Exploration of the Colorado River and Its Canyons.
