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

Falling in love was sweet like sugar until the taste turned bitter. Caught between Simmi who wants it bad but ain’t a lesbian, and Token Toni who loves a bitta bashment and only dates black and brown womxn – Mika can’t seem to catch a break. 

Fresh from a smash-hit run at the Edinburgh Fringe, original beats collide with poetry, movement and storytelling in Mika Onyx Johnson’s ★★★★★ debut play. Don’t miss this ‘dynamic, witty and moving’ (The Scotsman) exploration of sexuality, gender and self discovery. 

‘powerful, poignant… storytelling at its best’
Broadway Baby ★★★★★
‘dynamic, witty and moving’
The Scotsman ★★★★
‘A call for a revolution of acceptance… Pink Lemonade is stunning contemporary theatre with both heart and message… a triumphant Fringe debut‬’
The List ★★★★
