London, 1879. The prestigious Explorers Club is in crisis: their acting president wants to admit a woman, and their bartender is terrible. True, the 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, Irate Irishmen and the occasional airship.

What our patrons are saying:

“Very clever dialogue. Loved the costumes.”

“Great! Excellent acting! Super set! Great show!”
