It seems appropriate that Edmonds' Driftwood Players will debut Harvey on Good Friday and Easter weekend.
Harvey is the comedic story of likeable man and his imaginary friend, “Harvey”, a 6-foot, three-and-a-half-inch-tall rabbit.
Elwood P. Dowd starts to introduce his imaginary friend, Harvey, to guests at a society party. His society-obsessed sister, Veta, has seen as much of his eccentric behavior as she can tolerate.
She decides to have him committed to a sanitarium to spare her daughter, Myrtle Mae, and their family from future embarrassment. When they arrive at the sanitarium, due to a comedy of errors, the doctors commit Veta instead of Elwood, but when the truth comes out, the search is on for Elwood and his invisible companion.
The 1944 play by Mary Chase, later a movie starring Jimmy Stewart, is directed in Edmonds by David Alan Morrison.
The cast includes Monica Chilton, Dawn Cornell, Renee Gilbert, Mark Gladding, Thomas A. Glass, John N. Hartquist, Janice Hastings Hilstad, Patrick Kevin, Keith Remon, Susan Schroeter, David Selvig and Stephanie Spohrer.
Harvey runs Friday through April 22 at the Driftwood Players' Wade James Theater, 950 Main St., Edmonds. Shows are Thursdays through Saturdays at 8 p.m. and Sundays at 2 p.m. For more information, call 425-774-9600.
