It’s London, 1879, and the hapless members of the Explorers Club must confront their most lethal threat yet: the admission of a woman into their hermetically-sealed ranks. But the intrepid Phyllida Spotte-Hume turns out to be the least of their troubles, in this hilarious farce starring members of the original Broadway cast.

Original music composed and orchestrated by Laurence O’Keefe. Recordings produced by Mike Croiter and Laurence O’Keefe at Yellow Sound Lab.

Includes a conversation with essayist, novelist, and cultural critic Eileen Pollack.

Recorded before a live audience at The Invisible Studios, West Hollywood in February of 2014.

The Explorers Club is part of L.A. Theatre Works’ Relativity Series featuring science-themed plays. Major funding for the Relativity Series is provided by the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation, bridging science and the arts in the modern world.

"...an amusing fictional, and yet highly likely, depiction of the world of scientific exploration in the 1800s." — AudioFile Magazine
