ABSTRACT This paper analyzes Margery Kempe's behaviour as performance. I begin by cataloguing the different modes of physical and verbal theatre which Margery's text presents as evidence of her authority. I then explore the aspects of performance implied by the audience responses recorded in the text. Tracing the shift from performance to performativity, I discuss how Margery's theatrical self-presentation challenged conceptions of fixed gender and identity, revealing the source and impact of Margery's power in the audience/actor relationship. I conclude by demonstrating the potential reach of her performances and by identifying the ways in which her detractors attempted to contain her influence.
