Fake it ’til you Make it

Fake it 'til you Make it

This summer I managed to see two very uplifting pieces about depression. Fake it ’till you Make it was one of them. Bryony Kimmings has created a really beautiful show. Theatrical storytelling at its finest, I think. And just the kind of work I want to see, and make. It’s on at the Soho till mid-October, and is well worth catching, if you can.

The other piece was me belatedly catching up with Every Brilliant Thing – a really charming piece that used audience participation very inventively.

Two plays about (male) depression that didn’t feel heavy-handed, or overly ‘issues’ led. Just real, brilliant stories told with panache and theatricality.
