Michael Johnson's work for theatre reflects his scientific/academic background and his interests in history and French literature.

He is a keen supporter of awl, having played a pivotal role in the administration of the group (then Hammersmith Actors & Writers Group) between 1997 and 2000.

His comedy sketch, The Reading, was included in awl's first public showcase at Bullion Room Theatre, Hackney Empire, in November 2003.
