The Explorers Club Tickets

Manhattan Theatre Club Stage I

London, 1879. The prestigious Explorers Club faces the worst crisis in their history: their acting president wants to admit a woman, and their bartender is terrible. True, the 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?

What Is the Story of The Explorers Club?
Set in London in 1879, The Explorers Club is the story of the brilliant Phyllida Spotte-Hume and her bid to be the first female member of the exclusive Explorers Club. Nell Benjamin’s new madcap comedy addresses exclusion and prejudice, and features the farcical adventures of a group of London-based male explorers (many of whom have never actually discovered anything) who search for escaped cobras and threaten to unleash an international war.
