Description: SEASCAPE WITH SHARKS AND DANCER follows the relationship between Ben (Lombardo) and Tracy (Gardiner). They meet when Ben rescues Tracy from an apparent suicide attempt in the ocean outside his bungalow. Far from being grateful, Tracy is abrasive and ungrateful for Ben’s intervention. Their verbal sparring turns to flirtation and Ben is charmed by Tracy in spite of herself. The two become lovers but when Tracy moves in, the off-beat romance takes a dysfunctional turn. “Its boy meets girl turned on its head,” says Lombardo, who in addition to starring as Ben also serves as artistic director for Look at the Fish Theatre. “She's got some dreadful behavior that masks inner troubles.” Ben and Tracy begin a battle to marry love with trust. “I think the relationship is more true to life than any other human relationship in theatre,” says Lombardo. “There’s uncertainty and they do awful things, but they still love each other.”
