Illustrated. 8vo, illustrated green covers. ISER Social and Economic Studies, No. 36. "This critical and irreverent history of the Mummers Troupe demands the attnetion of theatre enthusiasts everywhere. Brookes, the Troupe's director, who has experience with 'activist' theatre in Cuba, Central America and the United States, examines the Mummers' important role in the development of Newfoundland theatre. With wit and polemic, Brookes delivers a broadside to establishment views of theatre while arguing for its political role. Crammed with photographs, excerpts from plays, songs, and one-liners, 'A Public Nuisance' will inform, entertain and provoke casual readers, drama students, theatre historians, and politicians alike." - from the rear cover. A couple of minor corner creases, bookplate, sparse foxing, else very good. Signed without inscription by Brookes on the flyleaf. 28.00
