After a sell-out run at Edinburgh Fringe 2019 and a revival at the Bush Theatre early in September, Mika Onyx Johnson’s ★★★★★ long-awaited smash hit debut comes to Contact.

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?

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.
