Move over Hugh Jackman, because there’s a new Aussie triple-threat in town. While she can’t sing or dance (or pull off the Wolverine mutton chops) Kacie Anning can act. And direct. And write.
Anning, along with producer Courtney Wise, is the brains behind the new comedy web series Fragments Of Friday. Described as a story about friendship — told through a hangover — Fragments of Friday follows three girls in their twenties as they try to piece together the ‘night before’.
The wave of nausea, a spinning ceiling and the seemingly endless flood of embarrassing flashbacks (who twerks anymore, really?) - we’ve all been there. And that’s what makes Fragments of Friday so relatable.
“My goal was always just to hold a mirror up to my own friendships and have them reflected back through a comedy premise,” explains Anning, who admits some dusty mornings of her own were inspiration. “It was always about creating a world that looks like everybody else’s and heightening it slightly through the comedy.”
