Mary Chase’s Pulitzer Prize-winning play tells the funny and touching story of Elwood P. Dowd, a polite and friendly man with a very strange best friend—a six-foot, three-and-one-half-inch invisible rabbit named Harvey. When Elwood’s sister Veta becomes concerned that the rabbit will interfere with her life as a socialite, her attempt to have Elwood committed at the local sanatorium, produces some surprising results. When Elwood leaves the sanatorium grounds unbothered, turning the town upside down, it turns out everyone has something to learn from this mild-mannered hero and his invisible rabbit.
The production is directed by veteran director Cass Cochrane and features many Stony Hill Player favorite actors, including Dennis Ryan of Berkeley Heights, Jean Dembaugh of New Providence, Rick Roberts of Summit, and Brian Cochrane of South Plainfield. Additional SHP veterans include: Elaine D'Addezio of New Providence and Peter Curley of Maplewood. An array of new local talent from area towns have also joined the cast.
