Bryony and Tim try to cure depression with song and stories
Fake It Til You Make It is a Perth Fringe World Festival production.

Tim Grayburn is an executive at one of the more presigious advertising agencies in the UK. He is funny, extroverted and brave. He also suffers from clinical depression.

Bryony Kimmings is an extravagantly extroverted performance artist currently about to perform in the Perth Fringe World Festival in Sex Idiot.

Despite the obvious differences, Bryony and Tim are a couple. Bryony spends most of her life on stage. Tim spends most of his life at his desk. After six months together, Bryony finds out about the secret we don't talk about - male drepression.

This writing and performance collaboration between the two "seeks to blast the taboo of mental health out of the water - with home made music, stupid dancing, on stage arguments, real life stories, tears and truths." According to Jenna Mathie of Blue Room Theatre who are hosting the show in Perth.

Fake It 'til You Make It runs at four venues. Firstly at The Mandurah Arts Centre, The Boardwalk, Ormsby Terrace, Mandurah, on January the 30th and 31st, then
from February the 3rd until the 7th at 8:00pm (special performance 4:00pm on the 7th) at the Pica Perfomance Space, Perth Cultural Centre, 51 James Street, Northbridge.

Tickets cost $30 (discounts for groups) and are obtainable from the FringeWorld website.

Finally the show will be at the Adelaide Fringe from February 14th to March 15th and Theatre Works March 17th to April 5th as part of the Melbourne International Comedy Festival.
