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?

Appearing in the cast are:

Bobby Marusiefski of Rahway as Lucius Fretway
Jennifer Wewers of Hillsborough as Pyllida Spottehume/ Countess Glamorgan
John Dowgin of Spotswood as Harry Percy
Aaron Ratzan of East Brunswick as Professor Cope
Bob Dumpert of Franklin Park Professor Sloan
Lewis Decker of Millington as Professor Walling
