Mika Onyx Johnson's Pink Lemonade opens to glowing reviews

Mika Onyx Johnson's PINK LEMONADE has premiered at the Bush Theatre to glowing reviews.

PINK LEMONADE is the autobiographical tale of how transmasculine Mika found themselves caught between two women, who in different ways threatened Mika's hard-won self-acceptance. Directed by Emily Aboud, PINK LEMONADE combines original beats with poetry, movement, and storytelling to create a unique and authentic piece of theatre. 

Mika is an actor, writer, and performance artist from Nottingham, who was recently in the ensemble for the National Theatre’s 2019 production of CYRANO DE BERGERAC. Mika was also one of the writers of The Bunker’s second edition of MY WHITE BEST FRIEND. Their work often explores subjects such as identity, gender, race, and sexuality.
