Photo Flash: WaterTower Theatre Presents HARVEY by Mary Chase
WaterTower Theatre the Pulitzer Prize-winning play Harvey by Mary Chase.
The story 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. When Elwood shows up at the sanitarium looking for his long lost friend Harvey, it seems that the mild-mannered Elwood's delusion has had a strange influence on more than one of the doctors, which leads Veta to realize that maybe Harvey isn't so bad after all.
