Staged reading of The Explorers Club by Nell Benjamin
Presented by The WordPlayers
Square Room, 4 Market Square in downtown Knoxville.
Admission is free and no reservations are necessary. For more information, call 865-539-2490.

THE STORY: 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, irate Irishmen and the occasional airship.

The WordPlayers is a 501(c)3 theatre company based in Knoxville, TN. Upcoming productions include ITALICS Footloose ITALICS at the Bijou Theatre, July 14-16. Brad Croisdale, of Realty Executives, sponsors the Staged Reading Series. For more information, see or call 865-539-2490.
