Very Rare Nfld Book, Grace Butt, To Toslow We'll Go, up for offers.
Grace Butt (nee Hue), born in 1909 in Brigus, Newfoundland, was a founding member of the St. John's Players, founded in St. John's in 1937. Based on the Little Theatre movement in Europe, Butt and others wanted to produce plays, foster the writing of plays and encourage the establishment of other drama groups. In 1945, the company produced her first full length play, The Road Through Melton. This is a remarkably well-crafted first play. Set in rural Newfoundland, it explores the tensions between urban and rural life, and charts a novice politician's campaign through unfamiliar territory.
