    Silver Beach Road

    by Robert P. Arthur
    • 10 - 60 minutes
    • 1 - 7 M or F

    spoken word, High School, Reader's Theater, Theatrical Staging Possible, Touring

    The book has all of the Robert P. Arthur’s skill and lovely, rhythmical language, but also a sense of loss of both life and love, the former viewed with both curiosity and indifference, the latter producing some of the author’s most moving love poems.

    The sea is. however, ever-present, just like in his other works. It is his mother, father, deity, heaven, a place of love and death to escape to. Surrealism has its place, as does the seriocomic and other post-modern elements.
