Harvey, set in the mid 1940s, is a delightful comedy that explores the definition of “normal” behavior. When the central character, Elwood P. Dowd, introduces his imaginary friend, a six-and-a-half foot rabbit named Harvey, to guests at his sister’s society tea—Elwood’s sister decides her brother’s fantasy life with Harvey has caused the family social humiliation for long enough. So, off to “Chumley’s Rest” she takes Elwood only to confuse the doctors into thinking that she is the one in need of “rest”. James Steward played Elwood P. Dowd in the popular film version. This endearing comedy will charm all ages.
