Theatre & Discussion Be the New House in Portland theatre!
What happens when history has predominantly been written about men and by men? You take those stories and blur gender on the stage! Join the AGE New House Group in seeing how history is (re)constructed in Men on Boats at Third Rail. Experience the play and then engage in a discussion about gender and equity.
AGE welcomes people in the first half of life to join the AGE New House Group. We engage a younger audience in discussions about equity, diversity, and inclusion in theatre.

Men on Boats by Jaclyn Backhaus
Ten explorers. Four boats. One Grand Canyon. Race down the rapids in this wildly, wonderful gender-bending escapade. Based (broadly) on the true adventures of the one-armed pioneering explorer John Wesley Powell and his intrepid crew, this gleefully subversive play capsizes the white male conquest narrative and discovers the beautifully fluid depth and courage of a wholly different landscape.
