Senior Class Reader's Theatre Play
As this light hearted comedy unfolds, Elwood P. Dowd has befriended a large yet invisible rabbit named Harvey, much to the humiliation of his socially conscious sister Veta and her daughter Myrtle Mae. In an attempt to spare the family from inevitable embarrassment, Veta takes matters into her own hands and has the likable Elwood committed to a sanitarium. Problems arise, however, when Veta herself is mistakenly assumed to be on the verge of lunacy as she explains to doctors that years of living with Elwood's hallucination have caused her to see Harvey also! Funny, moving and utterly beguiling this is a show the whole family will enjoy.
