The Toad Poems

by Gerald Locklin and George Carroll

With Donita Beeman, Cecile Monteyne and Niall Spooner-Harvey. Directed by Oscar Sharp. Presented by Double Square Productions.

It’s Southern California, 1975 and “meticulously unadorned” professor/ performance poet Burl Turner has recently separated from his warm and witty wife, Kate and is living with his tenacious graduate student girlfriend, Casey Hale. But maybe all Burl really wants to do is write the Great American Novel and enjoy a sandwich – in peace.

Playful and profound, The Toad Poems fuses the writing of George Carroll with the poetry of Gerald Locklin and offers observations on the bliss and blisters of domestic life with riffs and rants on Beethoven, beer and other important topics.

“A rare animal — a romantic comedy inhabited by literate and witty people” – Ron Cohen, Backstage NY

“One of the greatest undiscovered talents of our time” – Charles Bukowski on Gerald Locklin
