Seascape with Sharks and Dancer
Play: Seascape With Sharks and Dancer, by Don Nigro
Copyright: 1974, 1985 by Don Nigro

Character: Tracy
Character Info: Just a little background, Tracy is kinda crazy. This is a 2 character show. Ben, the male, fishes Tracy out of the ocean, clothes her and takes care of her... and she decides to stay after the first night... and they end up being a couple for several months. Have I mentioned that Tracy has a few screws loose? A play very much worth reading, if you can find it.

You know what I have nightmares about? There's these little tiny transparent flying things, see, I don't know what they are, but they're all sort of soft like the crap on pussywillows, you know what I mean? And they love me a lot and trust me and it'd be nice except they're so tiny and fragile I've got to watch out all the time or I'll squash them, and then there's more and more until almost all the space in the dream is filled up with them and I almost can't breathe and then somebody's calling me and I've got to go but I can't move because these damn little things are all over the place and they come right up and land on me and whisper things like music that i can't quite make out, and this person is calling me and I've got to go, so I try to get up very carefully and get away but as soon as I move I start to squash them and it's horrible but I can't stop so I keep going and every place I step I keep squashing them and they don't understand and tey're screaming and they make these terrible betrayed and shocked noises and then I'm running and stumbling and squashing them everyplace and crying and there's this screaming and screaming. (pause)And then I wake up and find myself having sex with some character I don't even know who is going to get in a hell of a lot of trouble if he doesn't let me get out of here quick.

Okay. the inserted "pause" is actually a line by Ben, who says, "And then what?" It's your discretion if you want to put that last sentence in.
