"Harvey" is a timeless story, written in 1944 by the American playwright Mary Chase, who won the Pulitzer Prize for Drama for the work a year later. Harvey closed on January 15, 1949, after 1,775 performances - and it closes this weekend at the Summit Playhouse!

"Harvey" tells the story of sweet, gentle man who finds something likable in everyone. His name is Elwood P. Dowd, and Elwood has a constant companion, a six-foot tall rabbit that only he can see (or is he just the only one who is comfortable enough to admit it?).

When Elwood starts to introduce Harvey to guests at a society party, his society-obsessed sister, Veta, decides to have him committed to spare her daughter Myrtle Mae and their family from future embarrassment and isolation. When Veta takes Elwood to the local sanatorium, the doctors mistakenly commit the anxiety-ridden Veta. This sets off a hilarious whirlwind of confusion and chaos.

"We are so happy that we could bring the wit and charm of Harvey to our audiences at the Summit Playhouse," says Steve Catron, director. "One of the things we love about this show is that folks know the title, since many have seen the movie with Jimmy Stewart. Patrons love the story of the big white rabbit Harvey and his unflappable friend Elwood P. Dowd."

Tonight and tomorrow night (May 9th and 10th) are the closing nights of the show. Don't miss it! Ticket price is $20, and you can order them at brownpapertickets.com, or 800-838-3006. Celebrate local theater and have a great time doing it!
