Written Mary Chase
Directed by Kari Welch

August 9 - August 24
Thurs - Sat 7:30pm, Sun 2:00pm

Veta has been trying to introduce her daughter, Myrtle Mae, into society but that isn't easy as her dear brother, Elwood P. Dowd is constantly underfoot with his best friend, Harvey, a six and a half foot tall rabbit whom only he can see (or is he the only one?).  Veta's attempt to commit Elwood to a sanitarium goes awry and ends up with Veta being treated for hallucinations at Chumley's Rest while Elwood and Harvey head to Charlie's Place, a local tavern, to greet friends.  As everyone scrambles to fix the mix-up, Harvey weaves his way into not just Elwood's psyche but our own and the true meaning of connection with our fellow man is revealed.
