About me:

"Pete Picton as watchable a Sir Toby Belch as you could find at any ticket price" At the centre of it Picton as sneering psychiatrist, amusing himself playing mind games." The Stage "To single out one person, it would be Pete Picton. His performance was sublime, stage presence wonderful. I would love to see more of him," "Deserving of high praise, Pete Picton as Kent."
