World premiere comedy by Nell Benjamin
Directed by Marc Bruni

THE EXPLORERS CLUB is a new madcap comedy from Tony®-nominated writer Nell Benjamin (Legally Blonde), directed by Marc Bruni (Old Jews Telling Jokes) and featuring the most ferociously funny cast in New York.

London, 1879. The prestigious Explorers Club is in crisis: their acting president wants to admit a woman, and their bartender is terrible. True, this female candidate is brilliant, beautiful, and has discovered a legendary Lost City, but the decision to let in a woman could shake the very foundation of the British Empire, and how do you make such a decision without a decent drink?

Grab your safety goggles for some very mad science involving deadly cobras, irate Irishmen and the occasional airship.
