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's 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. 'Bold, brave and very brilliant' (Independent).
