'The Explorers Club' concludes Clague's 90th season
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, carnivorous plants, irate Irishmen and gravity-defying libations.
"The Explorers Club" is by Nell Benjamin and is directed by Anne McEvoy. Our cast features Curt Arnold, Mike Frye, Robert Hawkes, Assad Khaishgi, Corey Knick, Colin P. McCauley, Mark Rabkin, Tyson Douglas Rand and Tiffany Trapnell.
