Here’s a delightful classic comedy about a kind hearted, middle-aged eccentric named Elwood P. Dowd whose best friend is an invisible Pooka, a benign but mischievous mythological creature resembling a six foot tall rabbit.

Happy with himself and his life, Elwood introduces everyone he meets to his friend, Harvey. His family is unsure if Dowd’s obsession with Harvey is a product of mental illness or his propensity to drink. In the ensuing mayhem, our hero’s vivid perspective in a world of oppressive conformity is wonderfully reassuring.

Genuine characters and uncomplicated values of love and friendship keep this play’s appeal intact almost 70 years after it was written.
