WHAT OTHERS SAY ABOUT AMANDA

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED' - Fringe Review UK

'Amanda Jane Porter has created a charming show, featuring a character that is both likable and relatable...a well-constructed, light-hearted, fun show which would make a great girls night out but will also appeal to a wider audience.' - Kryztoff
