‘Belinda Jenkin is excellent as the far-fetched Phoebe who manages to pull off the modified ‘Smelly Mom’ (instead of ‘Smelly Cat’) together with navigating the mayhem that is Phoebe’s life with exceptional eccentricity throughout the entire show.’
"Belinda Jenkin is a standout as the timid and puritanical Carol."
‘The strongest performances come from Belinda Jenkin whose voice carries a great deal of
nuance and emotion’
