A little bit about the play:  Harvey is the story of Elwood P. Dowd and his best friend, Harvey--a pooka, who is a six-foot tall invisible rabbit.  When Elwood begins introducing Harvey around town, his embarrassed sister Veta and her daughter are determined to commit Elwood to a sanitarium.  A mistake is made, however, and Veta is committed rather than Elwood!  Eventually, the mistake is realized, and a frantic search begins for Elwood and Harvey.  And in the end, we are asked what truly is "normal".  A delightful comedy for the whole family!
