Act 1 DeSales University Theatre opens its 45th season with Mary Chase’s hilarious comedy of errors, Harvey. This Pulitzer Prize winning play will be presented October 1 to 12, 2014 on the Main Stage of the Labuda Center for the Performing Arts.

Harvey centers on Elwood P. Dowd, an affable, charismatic man who makes friends wherever he goes. When Elwood starts to introduce his presumably imaginary friend, Harvey—whom he describes as a six-foot, three-and-one-half-inch tall pooka resembling an anthropomorphic rabbit—to guests at a society party, his social-climbing sister, Veta, has had as much of his eccentric behavior as she can tolerate. She decides to have him committed to a sanitarium to spare their family from future embarrassment. Problems arise, however, when Veta herself is mistakenly assumed to be on the verge of lunacy when she explains to doctors that years of living with Elwood’s hallucination have caused her to see Harvey also! The doctors commit Veta instead of Elwood, but when the truth comes out, the search is on for Elwood and his invisible companion. When he shows up at the sanitarium looking for his lost friend Harvey, it seems that the mild-mannered Elwood’s delusion has had a strange influence on more than one of the doctors. Only at the end does Veta realize that maybe Harvey isn’t so bad after all.

Theatre alumnus Matt Pfeiffer directs the production. “I am thrilled to be returning home to DeSales and Act 1, and I can’t think of a better place to stage this classic play,” says Pfeiffer. “I love the joy and optimism of “Harvey” and that was very much the spirit I had as a student at DeSales. I see that same spirit in the students now; it’s what makes Act 1 so special.”

Please be advised that the Labuda Box Office does not accept the 3D card.
