THE EXPLORERS CLUB

By Nell Benjamin
Directed by Art Manke

It’s 1879, in London. The prestigious Explorers Club is in crisis: their acting president wants to admit a woman, and their bartender is legendary as the worst in town. Phyllida, the female candidate in question, is brilliant, beautiful, and has discovered a legendary Lost City, but letting a woman into the Club could shake the very foundation of the British Empire. And how do you make such a decision without a decent drink? Get ready for this mad cap explorers’ world of guinea pig science, deadly cobras, irate Irishmen, and the occasional airship. Nell Benjamin’s 19th Century British farce adds her to the ranks of today’s outstanding female playwrights.
