University of Idaho Night at Idaho Shakespeare

Friday, August 10 2012 (Mountain Time)

Join University of Idaho president M. Duane Nellis, alumni and friends for "University of Idaho Night" at the Idaho Shakespeare Festival on Friday, August 10, 2012.


Enjoy the fabulous play, "The Imaginary Invalid", amongst a sea of Vandals.


Tracy Young, director of last year’s smash-hit The Taming of the Shrew, grabs the helm of this freely adapted and hysterical comedy. Is there a doctor in the house? The wealthy Argan is a housebound hypochondriac with every disease imaginable. Literally. Lurking quacks are only too happy to (mis)treat him. Family troubles, a money-grubbing wife and headstrong daughters, add to Argan’s miseries. Molière’s comedy gets an injection of 1960’s pop culture. Original songs and satirical bite.


We'd love to have you join us at 6:00pm on the patio for dinner. Bring your own or order a delicious box dinner from Cafe Shakespeare for only $18. Order your dinner selection online at
