The Edinburgh Festival Fringe sell out hit about clinical depressions and men.
Six months into their relationship, Bryony found out that Tim suffered from severe clinical depression. This was a secret Tim had kept for a very long time. Fake it ‘til you Make it is Edinburgh Fringe First-winner Bryony Kimmings’ new work about clinical depression and men, made in collaboration with her partner Tim, who works in advertising.
A wickedly warming, brutally honest and powerfully heartbreaking show about the wonders of the human brain, being in love and what it takes to be a “real man”.
