WaterTower Theatre presents Harvey
This Pulitzer Prize-winning play follows Elwood P. Dowd, a polite man with a very strange best friend. Elwood’s sister, Veta, is concerned her brother’s friend will interfere with her life as a socialite. And who can blame her? Elwood’s friend is a six-foot, three-and-one-half-inch invisible rabbit named Harvey.
To avoid future embarrassment, Veta attempts to have Elwood committed, but after her frantic recount of her brother’s condition she finds herself mistakenly committed instead. The truth quickly reveals itself, and the search is on for Elwood and his invisible companion. But Elwood and Harvey’s influence on more than one of the doctors leads Veta to realize that maybe Harvey isn’t so bad after all.
