3 Farcical Arts of the Deal: Peas, Pierre Patelin, and Purgation

  • Fine Arts Theatre 255 Baldwin Street Athens, GA, 30602 United States (map)

An old down-on-his-luck lawyer sets off an endless chain of deceit that backfires on him. A young husband turns a messy accident to his advantage. A foolish man attempts to sell a sack of peas, hampered by the worst memory ever. These three farces demonstrate the difficulty of living harmoniously when our needs conflict with others and the dangers of negotiating with those we don't trust. Peas, Patelin, & Purgation will travel to Genoa, Italy in July 2019 to perform for the sixteenth triennial colloquium of the Société Internationale pour l’Étude du Théâtre Médiéval (International Society for the Study of Medieval Theatre).
