Hastings College Department of Theatre Arts presents, “Harvey” By Mary Chase.

Elwood P. Dowd is a mild-mannered gentleman from a good family. His best friend is an invisible six-foot tall rabbit named Harvey. Elwood’s sister wants him committed. The doctors aren’t sure who to commit. Hilarity ensues. Mary Chase’s Pulitzer Prize-winning comedy was also turned into the hit 1950 movie of the same name starring Jimmy Stewart.
