A Pulitzer Prize winning play, “Harvey”
became an instant classic with the 1950 film version starring
Jimmy Stewart. Elwood Dowd is a kindhearted fellow who is inadvertently
damaging his family’s social standing and his niece’s
chances for a proper marriage due to his insistence that his closest
companion is an invisible 6-foot-3-inch rabbit named Harvey.
Elwood’s sister Veta tries to have him committed to a mental
institution, Veta’s own sanity comes into question. Amid
the often slapstick humor emerges a message of tolerance, understanding,
and appreciation for the simpler things in life.
