London, 1879. The prestigious Explorers Club is in crisis: their acting president wants to admit, of all things, a woman (!), plus they are badly in need of a new bartender. This play is a witty spoof of Victorian adventurers who ravaged foreign lands in the name of science.

“You don’t have to be British to lose your composure and howl with laughter at THE EXPLORERS CLUB.” —Variety
