    Ballerina’s Feet

    Ballerina’s Feet

    Gary’s blatantly brilliant! He really knows what he’ s doing, you know? I had this meeting with him and he was just really inspirational, you know? He was telling me about the youngest millionaire in the company, and he was all like ‘There is nothing stopping you getting there too, Kacey’.






    Kacey wants a Porsche. Sophie wants to own a flat. Emma… isn’t entirely sure what she wants. Although she definitely doesn’t want to be running round South Kensington trying to sell things people don’t want. With no other job options, and a looming student loan, it might be her only chance. As Kasey says, with positive thinking, nothing could go wrong… apparently.




    A brand new (blatantly funny) comedy.
