THE EXPLORERS CLUB
directed by Artistic Director
Lara Toner Haddock
April 1 - May 1, 2016
Henry and Annie have fallen in love, much to the chagrin of their spouses, but their affair does not lead to domestic bliss. As Henry endeavors to break through his protective facade of clever quips, Annie struggles to remain faithful to her new husband. This backstage comedy evolves into a thought-provoking meditation on “the real thing” in relationships, politics, and art. Stoppard combines his characteristically brilliant wordplay and wit with flashes of insight that illuminate the nature and the mystery of love, creating a Tony Award-winning play that challenges the mind while searching out the innermost secrets of the heart.
