This stranger-than-fiction true life story is a moving and thoughtful portrayal of one man’s determination to find the Good Samaritan who changed his life.
On a cold January morning in 2008, 21 year old Jonny Benjamin went to Waterloo Bridge to take his life. Balanced on the edge of the railings, a stranger stopped and talked him out of jumping in an act of kindness that was to change both their lives forever.
The Stranger on the Bridge is a poignant account of what led Jonny to the bridge that day and the astonishing events six years later when he decided to track down the Good
Samaritan to say thanks. A heart-warming, inspirational and deeply moving production featuring Jonny Benjamin himself this is an account of what it is to struggle with mental illness
but also how redemption can be found in the darkest and unlikeliest of moments.
