Audition Description

Harvey is the story of a perfect gentleman, Elwood P. Dowd, and his best friend, Harvey -- a pooka (an Irish spirit, mischievous but not malevolent), who is a six-foot tall, invisible rabbit. The hilarity starts when Elwood begins introducing Harvey to guests at his sister Veta's society luncheon. Horrified that the embarrassing family secret is now exposed, Veta decides to have Elwood committed to a sanitarium, but a mistake is made when Veta is committed rather than Elwood. Mary Chase's Pulitzer Prize-winning comedy that has everyone questioning what exactly is real, and who is really crazy?
