Fake it ’til you Make it

Bryony Kimmings and Tim Grayburn

Sadly, due to unforeseen personal circumstances, Fake it ‘til you Make it has been cancelled. Read more here.


Bryony is an outrageous, hilarious and fearless performance artist from London.

Tim is an outrageous, hilarious and fearless account manager from a top advertising agency.

Bryony and Tim are a couple. Bryony spends most of her life on tour, trying her best to change the world. Tim spends most of his life at a desk trying his best to sell the world. Six months into their relationship, Bryony found out that Tim suffers from severe clinical depression. He had kept it a secret for a very long time. Fake it ‘til you Make it is Bryony Kimmings’ award-winning, Edinburgh sell-out new work about clinical depression and men made in collaboration with Tim.

A wickedly warming, brutally honest and heart-breaking show about the wonders and pitfalls of the human brain, being in love and what it takes to be a ‘real man’.
