Tracy, a twenty-something year old works for busy supermarket, PRYCE. She is after world domination in the form of a promotion within the administrative department. Her work colleagues, Tom and Gina aid her in her life-long quest for perfection behind the PRYCE shop floor. It’s hard.
While Gina, her sidekick, obeys her with child-like adoration, Tom is unsettled by Tracy. Tracy is threatened by Tom's natural ability in the office, though she finds him inexplicably alluring. In turn, Tom has a soft spot for Gina though he can never quite voice this.
Lucy, Heather, Gareth and Darryl form the remainder of the sales team. They congregate to discuss ideas on a weekly basis. The ideas are somewhat abstract.
Tracy is going places. The world is her oyster.
Sophie Morgan-Price accomplishes something impressive here. Her writing, along with her portrayal of Tracy, is actually quite wonderful to behold. Her sense of grandeur and moral superiority, combined with her social obliviousness, sexual forwardness and propensity for awkwardness created some genuinely heartfelt laughs, but didn’t fail to be poignant. You won’t know what makes ‘Tracy’ such a charming little production, but its charm is undeniable. -THREE WEEKS
From the beginning sequence, Sophie Morgan-Price sets herself up as a talented actress with a great command of the audience’s attention and sympathy. There are some scenes of uncomfortable David Brent comedy. I’ll admit I’ve never laughed at The Office, yet Tracy delivers a few moments of comedy that will crease you up laughing - as well as cringing. - BROADWAY BABY
