Seascape With Sharks and Dancer

By Dan Nigro

Spring 2019

Presented in a different venue most nights, this two-person play about a relationship will take place in a variety of different living rooms. Directed by Rob Andersen; starring Leah Christine as Tracey and Tom Sorenson as Ben.

While walking along a beach one night, lonely writer Ben spots a barely clad young woman struggling in the ocean. Jumping into action, he pulls her to shore and brings her back to his dingy beach house to recover. Heroic - but Tracey’s not the least bit thankful. In fact, she declares that she wasn’t drowning, but dancing, and how dare he interrupt her moment. She’s eccentric, rude, kooky, smug, and difficult. Despite all of this, Ben is entranced. Two damaged people come together and form an unlikely relationship in this dark, romantic comedy by Don Nigro. He’s the image of unconditional love, she’s the poster child for survivors of toxic relationships. Together they are playing emotional war games and there’s no guarantee of a peace treaty anytime soon.
