The Teacup Club (For the Advancement of Woman) is formed when Dorothy decides to found an intellectual club of her own - to teach her fiance a lesson! The club’s discussion topics (official) includes Theosophy, Politics and Women in Legislature. The club’s unofficial topics include Emily’s new dress, man-flu (it's causes and cures) and the great mystery of the missing chafing-dish. A witty drama and a comedy of manners, secrets and politics (both official and unofficial). - Summary by Elizabby

Reviews

funny in a satirical way


(3 stars)

The story is funny and very satirical, but not all of the voice readers are equally skilled. Still, none of them were actually bad, so I enjoyed it very much. It ends too suddenly though.


(4 stars)

Funny story, enjoyed these ladies idea of an intellectual club. All the readers were great, they really helped to make each character distinct.
