Harvey

March 13, 14, 20, 21, 22, 2020

by Mary Chase

By Special Arrangement from Dramatist Playservice, Inc.

Elwood P. Dowd insists on including his friend Harvey in all of his sister Veta’s social gatherings. Trouble is, Harvey is an imaginary six-and-a-half-foot-tall rabbit. To avoid future embarassment for her family—and especially for her daughter, Myrtle Mae—Veta decides to have Elwood committed to a sanitarium. At the sanitarium, a frantic Veta explains to the staff that her years of living with Elwood’s hallucination have caused her to see Harvey also, and so the doctors mistakenly commit her instead of her mild-mannered brother. The truth comes out, however; Veta is freed, and the search is on for Elwood, who eventually arrives at the sanitarium of his own volition, looking for Harvey. But it seems that Elwood and his invisible companion have had a strange influence on more than one of the doctors. Only at the end does Veta realize that maybe Harvey isn’t so bad after all.

It's set in an Oxford college in 1892.

Charles Wykeham uses the imminent arrival of his Brazilian aunt Donna Lucia as an opportunity to invite two young ladies to his rooms for tea.  But when Donna Lucia's visit is postponed and they're without a chaperone, rather than cancel the tea-party, Charles and Jack persuade their fellow student Lord Fancourt to impersonate the Aunt.  Lord Fancourt relishes the opportunity and particularly enjoys being kissed by the girls and sharing their confidences.  So much so, he stubbornly refuses to abandon his role

But then the real Donna Lucia turns up ...
