The Explorers Club

explorers clubYet another incredible show is opening at the Topeka Civic Theatre! Nell Benjamin’s The Explorers Club transports us to London, 1879. The 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?

Don’t miss this show running May 31st to June 15th!
