Current Department of Theatre Arts Season

The U of I Theatre Arts Department performs several captivating plays each season.

Fall Season 2020

This fall season, University of Idaho Theatre Arts is excited to present three productions which will capture your imagination:

“Happy Mess” by MFA playwriting candidate Ian Paul Messersmith | directed by Sarah Campbell

New and old family secrets come out as the past and present collide in this dark comedy. In a constant barrage of self-doubt, change and circumstance each character is trying to discover themselves and live their truth. We lie and tell ourselves we’re happy. But when the truth’s revealed there’s a mess to clean up. And this family is one big Happy Mess.
