Black Hills Community Theatre presents its final mainstage show of its 50th season with the comedy Harvey by Mary Chase. Elwood P. Dowd is the most pleasant and charming man you’ll ever meet. And his best friend is pretty nice too, if you like six-foot tall invisible rabbits. A wonderful chance to see one of the most popular plays in the American theater canon, which earned playwright Mary Chase the Pulitzer Prize in 1945.
Elwood P. Dowd is an affable man who claims to have an unseen friend named Harvey — whom Elwood describes as a six-foot, one-and-one-half-inch tall rabbit. Elwood introduces Harvey to everyone he meets, much to the chagrin of Veta, his social-climbing sister, and Myrtle Mae, his unmarried niece. Veta increasingly finds his eccentric behavior embarrassing and decides to have him committed to a sanitarium. However, things only get more stressful for Veta when they get to Chumley’s Rest as misunderstandings occur, romances bloom, and things reveal themselves in surprising ways.
