Mention must also be made of the integral contribution of voice and dialect coach Amanda Stephens-Lee, who has succeeded in ensuring everyone sounds the part. The accents here are faultless.

The Welsh accent is a notoriously tricky one to maintain but dialect coach Amanda Stephens-Lee has equipped the cast to handle it.

Bird - Jason Blake, Audrey Journal

"Dialect coach Amanda Stephens-Lee has helped the characters find their truth in faithful American accents"

You Got Older - Cassie Tongue, Time Out Magazine

"Stephens-Lee is excellent as the brittle Ellen."
"Amanda Stephens Lee is on the money as Jamie's sharp-tongued barmaid mum, Sandra."

Jason Blake, Sydney Morning Herald

"And what Stephens-Lee can do with an eyebrow, or a slight curl of her upper lip, many actors can’t do with their whole body, or a soliloquy"

Lloyd Bradford Syke, Syke on Stage

Ms Lee relishes the opportunity of the role, the quick one-line zingers and the humanity of the woman is given a delicious, fully fleshed drawing.
