“We have entered as strangers...soon we have friends.”
The affable Elwood P. Dowd has developed a life of contentment that he shares with his best friend: a 6-foot-tall pooka rabbit. But his eccentric ways are increasingly threatening to his sister’s social aspirations, and she resolves to have him committed to a sanitarium…until plans go awry and she ends up being committed instead. Winner of the 1945 Pulitzer Prize, this classic comedy challenges our assumptions of what - and who - is “normal,” and whether that’s something we want to be anyhow.
Harvey will be a site-specific production, performed in collaboration with Senior Housing Options at the historic Olin Hotel in Capitol Hill, which now serves as residential apartments for older adults and individuals with disabilities.
