The play follows the eccentric Elwood P. Dowd who insists on inviting his very good friend to all of his sister’s social gatherings. Elwood’s friend, however, is a six-foot, one-and-one-half inch tall rabbit named Harvey that seems to be invisible to most who meet him.

This Pulitzer prize winning comedy of errors, also adapted for film (starring James Stewart) and recently revived on Broadway, will leave audiences smiling as the characters slowly learn how to believe in what they see, and even in what they don't!
