"In this world, Elwood, you must be oh so smart or oh so pleasant."
Welcome to life of Elwood P. Dowd. An affable chap with an unlikely best pal called Harvey, a six-foot tall imaginary rabbit. Whilst he sees nothing wrong with his big-eared friend, his family are more than bit concerned, but more for their reputation than his well-being. With James Dreyfus and Maureen Lipman, this Birmingham Repertory Theatre production makes it's West End transfer for a strictly limited run this spring, before heading out to tour the UK.
This hilarious caper is a much loved classic. Written in 1944 by Mary Chase, it has enjoyed runs world-wide and won a pulitizer prize to boot and was immortalised on the silver screen starring James Stewart in 1950.
When Elwood's social climbing sister Veta finds out about Harvery, she quickly enlists the help of Dr William Chumley, a psychiatrist who's mission is to eradicate the imaginary interloper and save the family reputation. But Veta's plans quickly descend into chaos when it is she who is sectioned instead!
