UGA Theatre’s new production of “Peas, Patelin, and Purgation: Three Farcical Arts of the Deal” consists of three separate medieval works—“The Farce of the Peas,” “The Farce of Master Patelin” and “The Farce of the Washtub”—that comically play around with the difficulties of living harmoniously when negotiations go awry. Notably, “The Farce of the Peas” was only just recently discovered and translated, and has not been performed in close to 500 years. Shows will be held Mar. 19–23 at 8 p.m., with afternoon matinees on Mar. 23–24 at 2:30 p.m. Following its run at UGA, the production will travel to Genoa, Italy in July.
