About this show

The Toad Poems is a comedy about how the brilliant, opinionated, yet meticulously unadorned poet and professor, Burl (Toad) Turner manages to balance a half-hearted separation from his ex-wife with the rush of a younger live-in girlfriend. How can Toad stubbornly refuse to compromise his individuality while chronicling the world from a barstool and still keep the women in his life? This is a new play about the romance of language, and how we learn to live with - and even love - our flaws.
