" Of Good Report is sharpest when it abandons narrative and behaves like a living cartoon. The richest comic character is unhinged boss Houghton-Twist (Jon Campling), who treats life like a military campaign."

"..comedy that also gives us Jon Campling's terrific turn as the cuckolded,
cane-carrying 'Beverley Houghton-Twist' in Burma shorts and suspenders."

"Jon Campling's BBC producer, still imagining himself fighting the war, is presumably an amalgam of characters. He is funny to watch, even when playing Beckett's Estragon who wanders in from another play"
" eccentric Major Beverley Houghton-Twist (Jon Campling), who creates from JA's inspired writing a remarkable and subtle Beverley Houghton-Twist - an initially comic eccentric with increasing tiers of depth."

THEATREWORLD Internet Magazine
" Jon Campling plays the almost surreally eccentric Beverley Houghton-Twist, Beverley's post-colonial insanity embodies the sense of comic energy that defines the piece, as his small islander perspective is revealed as twisting itself into
something ever more weird."

Reviewsgate (online)
" With Jon Campling's hilariously straight-backed,absent-mannered BBC exec, taking a moment to absorb anything that's said to him. Antrobus' production is finely acted, packed with hilarious cameos and played at high speed - it's a comic treat."
