★★★★ “Life frequently gave them lemons but goddam Johnson’s got the juice” – The Stage 18 best shows of Edinburgh Fringe 2019

Just when Mika was starting to feel at home in their own body, they find themselves caught between Simmi who’s sweet like sugar but ain’t a lesbian and Token Toni who loves a bitta bashment and only dates black and brown butches – how can they catch a break when straight women are like junk food?

After a sell out run at Edinburgh Fringe 2019, Mika Onyx Johnson’s ★★★★★ long awaited smash hit debut returns to London. Original beats collide with poetry and movement in this explosive autobiographical piece of storytelling. Do not miss this ‘dynamic, witty and moving’ (The Scotsman) journey of sexuality, identity and self discovery.

★★★★★ “powerful, poignant… storytelling at its best”‬ – Broadway Baby
★★★★ ‘Johnson is a compelling….and dynamic new voice’ – What’s On Stage
★★★★ “A call for a revolution of acceptance… Pink Lemonade is stunning contemporary theatre with both heart and message… a triumphant Fringe debut‬” – The List
★★★★ “Furious and Fruity. Pink Lemonade is a glow-in-the-dark manifesto exploring queer culture as we know it” – A Younger Theatre
