MEN ON BOATS
Written by Jaclyn Backhaus
Directed by Maura Hanlon
In 1869, one-armed explorer John Wesley Powell and his crew of 9 men in 4 boats went down the Colorado River into the Grand Canyon, not knowing what lay ahead. This great adventure is reenacted by ten women —- the rapids, the rations, the ride of their lives— an ingenious, hilarious, brilliant new play and a hit of the season last year at New York City’s Playwrights Horizons.

The Lyn Peabody Wildflower Garden was established by the Nauset Garden Club in 1987. With the cooperation and encouragement of the Cape Cod Natural History Museum, the Wildflower Garden has flourished through the years and continues to be maintained by the Nauset Garden Club. Annually, they have added new native plants and bushes to the Garden and plan to establish a new part of the Garden this year through a generous gift from a former gardener from the Club.
