The Resource Foundation for the Arts. (Mummers Troupe)
TitleThe Resource Foundation for the Arts. (Mummers Troupe)
Scope and Content of FondsAfter completion of his book, A Public Nuisance: A History of the Mummers Troupe, Chris Brookes deposited the papers of - the Resource Foundation for the Arts/Mummers Troupe in the Archives and Special Collections in August 1988. These files had been stored - in no apparent order and kept in open cardboard boxes so that most of them were fairly dusty and tattered. It was - necessary to rearrange the files and re-organize some to more clearly document the history of the company. - These papers were generated between 1972 - 1982, a period of political and social awakening both in Newfoundland and - the world in general. In Canada, the Mummers were on the leading edge of a new kind of theatre in which established - institutions are questioned and satirized, and the plight of common people is brought to the forefront. Through the - correspondence and the production notes and research material the researcher will be able to trace both the growth of the - troupe and the development of theatre in Newfoundland as a social consciousness raiser. Researchers should also look at - Coll-125, Resource Centre for the Arts, Coll-124, Richard M. Boland collection and other arts groups and individuals who - may have had dealings with RFA. - - -
