Scope and content

The collection relates to the preparation and performance of 'Beyond the Breakers', which relates to the north Norfolk lifeboats of Cromer, Sheringham and Wells. As the play is both drama and documentary, Eastern Angles, and principally Ivan Cutting, its Artistic Director, carried out a lot of research by interviewing several people who were or are involved with the Royal National Lifeboat Institution (RNLI). For this reason the archive includes a series entitled research material as well as items created as a direct result of the play's production. The research element of the production was partly funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund.
