Following a tip from an old friend, we first saw Bryony perform at Edinburgh Festival Fringe 2010. The show: Sex Idiot. The room: tiny. 

One of the best things we saw that festival, we presented Sex Idiot‘s London transfer in our Soho Theatre Upstairs. Keen to continue working with Bryony, we wanted to help develop and support her as an artist and performer.

From commissioning through Soho Six (our year long residency programme) to co-producing and presenting, we have helped Bryony to make:

  • 7 Day Drunk (2011)
  • Credible Likeable Superstar Role Model (2013) and 
  • Fake It ‘Til You Make It (2015)

Bryony has since toured her critically acclaimed and award-winning shows nationally and internationally. Her work honest, heart-breaking, heart-warming, audacious and provocative.

Credible Likeable Superstar Role Model

In an audacious, provocative protest against flagrant global attempts to sexualise and commodify childhood for profit, Bryony and her nine year old niece, Taylor, decided to play the global tween machine at its own game.

And play it they did. A huge success at Edinburgh Fringe, the show played to standing ovations in sell-out houses. As well as critically acclaimed across the board, it won many awards. Successful sell-out runs of Soho Theatre followed before international touring.

‘Hilarious, heartbreaking, troubling and inspirational. Kick-ass in all the right ways.’ ★★★★★ Time Out

Fake it ‘til you make it

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’.

Bryony made and performed this show in collaboration with her partner Tim Grayburn. Previewing in Australia first, the show became a smash sell-out award-winning hit at Edinburgh Fringe. A month sell-out run with us at Soho Theatre directly followed.

‘An expressionistic hour brimming with invention’ ★★★★★ Evening Standard
