Mamma Mia .... a new play by Catherine Johnson

Benchmark lending or pure genius

Mamma Mia!

21 years after her original play was presented at the Bristol Old Vic, Mamma Mia! writer Catherine Johnson is coming back to the opening of a new piece of work.

The Clifton Suspension Bridge is the setting for the Bristol playwright's most recent piece, aptly named - ‘Suspension’.

Mamma Mia! She's Drawn back

The site’s executive chairman, Dick Penny, asked if Ms Johnson would write the play to introduce the Old Vic's new programme, Ms Johnson has been constantly drawn back to Bristol Old Vic since 1988, when she was successful with a playwriting competition.

After her initial success, Catherine Johnson went on to become the theatre's in-house writer and has since continued to write and present plays for them. Mamma Mia! How success breeds success - no benchmark lending here ... I wish a little would rub off on me and mine.
Catherine Johnson, I wish you all the luck in the world.
