It appears that the appeal fell on deaf ears.
In this essay I will provide a performance-oriented reading of TR which seeks to challenge the still-pervasive reduction of the play to a by-the-numbers exercise in ideological command-and- control, and in particular challenging needlessly reductive couplings of comic perform- ance with simplistic anti-catholicism.
Generic propaganda and generic touring are mutually supportive concepts; think- ing more carefully about one helps us to think more carefully about the other the reverse, of course, is also true.
Stuart Hampton-Reeves noted in the s the way in which the irst quartos of 2 and 3 Henry VI could have par- ticular resonances in performances in Kent and York respectively, and that plays could have been selected for touring routes with this in mind.
