In July 2019, the University Theatre’s production of Peas, Pierre Pathelin, and Purgation, or Three Farcical Arts of the Deal is invited to perform for the sixteenth triennial colloquium of the Société Internationale pour l’Étude du Théâtre Médiéval in Genoa, Italy. The student actors will attend this weeklong conference and festival of medieval theatre, learning from subject area experts and observing other approaches to similar material. This international exchange between scholars and students deepens the integration of scholarship and artistic practice. Through their intensive engagement with this fifteenth-century literature, the students are learning to educate their peers and the UGA community about and through farce as a social practice.

The play centers on how these three farces demonstrate the difficulties of living harmoniously with people when our needs conflict and negotiating with people who we don’t trust—problems as pressing now as they were when modern commerce and legal practice were taking shape in the late fifteenth century.

By supporting this initiative, your gift will not only provide funding for lodging, airfare, and meals, but will also support research opportunities for the Theatre and Film Studies Department.
