How might Katherine's final speech be staged in the twenty-first century?

How might it have been staged in the sixteenth? Must this speech be played for irony, or should we understand her words as sincere?

This Handbook foregrounds performance and history as interpretative issues, introducing readers to a process of creative imaginative thought.

It offers skills and materials with which to explore the variety of ways in which Shakespeare's 'troubling comedy' or 'light tragedy' might take on meaning today.
