‘Fake It Till You Make It’ is a darkly comedic one-woman show about Leda, an actor struggling to make it. As she navigates the roles she plays in her own personal life and in her acting, she finds herself in a situation she has spent her life trying to avoid. She is taken advantage of by the male lead in her first screen job and as she struggles to repair the mask of who she once was back together, her life as she knows it spins out of control. ‘Fake It Till You Make It’ explores what it means to survive in a world where men both threaten and confirm your identity. It asks us to question all the lies we tell ourselves and others and where we stand in a society that tells us to stay grateful, smiling and thriving, even when we are not.
