Elwood P Dowd believes that he is constantly accompanied by an invisible giant white rabbit called Harvey. His sister believes that he is not just a likeable drunk but certifiable.

Mary Chase's classic comedy subtly points out our intolerance to those would rather be pleasant than smart.

The action alternates between the library of the Dowd family home and the lobby of Chumley's Rest Sanitarium.

Our May 2012 production was directed by Colin Stirling-Whyte.
