Tracy

Workplace drama can become pretty intense. There’s competition, romance, team building activities, promotions and middle management, all in balance along with getting on with the actual job. Tracy provides a very relatable yet totally hilarious piece for anyone who has ever worked in retail, hospitality, or any type of middle management, as part of a target-driven work force.

With a nonsensically take-no-nonsense attitude Tracy will worm its way into your heart

A position has opened upstairs for a new Head of Sales and Tracey wants the job. She has been beaten to it before, but this time it’s surely hers. She is the team leader of a small group of dedicated staff who are willing to follow her every demand. She is a tough woman ready for anything and will not let the awful Lucy from next door stand in her way. Through a fantastically funny team building game i.e extensive hide and seek, and a nonsensically take-no-nonsense attitude Tracy will worm its way into your heart.

The performers are spot on in their portrayal of a petty workplace. Each actor pulling constant laughter from the audience. There is never a dull moment, and a guaranteed giggle at the end of every line. The production itself isn’t particularly clever or ground-breaking but simply unadulterated fun. At times the plot feels a little samey but the actors ensure that the energy doesn’t drop. Despite how ridiculous and over-the-top the characters and situations are, they still have a core that is oddly familiar. We’ve probably all met a Tracy. Well written and delivered with impeccable timing and skill, Tracy truly embraces the Fringe spirit with its own unique relatable yet absurd brand of comedy.

Since you’re here…

… we have a small favour to ask. We don't want your money to support a hack's bar bill at Abattoir, but if you have a pound or two spare, we really encourage you to support a good cause. If this review has either helped you discover a gem or avoid a turkey, consider doing some good that will really make a difference.

You can donate to the charity of your choice, but if you're looking for inspiration, there are three charities we really like.

Mama Biashara
Kate Copstick’s charity, Mama Biashara, works with the poorest and most marginalised people in Kenya. They give grants to set up small, sustainable businesses that bring financial independence and security. That five quid you spend on a large glass of House White? They can save someone’s life with that. And the money for a pair of Air Jordans? Will take four women and their fifteen children away from a man who is raping them and into a new life with a moneymaking business for Mum and happiness for the kids.

Theatre MAD
The Make A Difference Trust fights HIV & AIDS one stage at a time. Their UK and International grant-making strategy is based on five criteria that raise awareness, educate, and provide care and support for the most vulnerable in society. A host of fundraising events, including Bucket Collections, Late Night Cabarets, West End Eurovision, West End Bares and A West End Christmas continue to raise funds for projects both in the UK and Sub-Saharan Africa.

The Blurb

A brutal comedy about a hard-ass woman out for world domination in the form of a supermarket promotion. Group leader Tracy spearheads her sales team who aid and abet her in the lifelong quest for perfection on the shop floor. Tracy's done with middle management. Screw the price drops. Bollocks to the targets. Her faithful sidekicks help her to climb the supermarket ladder while Tracy's arch-enemy Lucy sticks her trolley in. Everyone thinks Lucy should do one. Finding incisive hilarity in the crushing boredom of bureaucratic life, Tracy is the office comedy for the millennial generation. Supermarkets are brutal.
