THE EXPLORERS CLUB is a new madcap comedy set in 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 foundationof the British Empire, and how do you make such a decision without a decent drink?
