  • Brian Trompeter in Inside NOVA: MCP's "Harvey" proves a humorous call for kindness
  • Maryland Theatre Guide Jeff Walker: 'Harvey' lives up to its zany and heart-warming reputation as a classic.
  • Connection David Siegel: A whimsical comedy
  • DC Metro Theater Arts By Em Skow: ...making everyone's day a bit more pleasant, and maybe, sometimes, those actions come in the form of a large, white rabbit.
Harvey, the 1944 Pulitzer Prize-winning comedy by Mary Chase, features -- like Beckett's Waiting for Godot -- a principal character who is ever present but never apparent. Unlike Godot, however, Harvey is a whimsical "forget-all-your-worries" flight of fancy, principally powered by the endearing eccentricities of Elwood P. Dowd, a middle-aged bachelor who, in his own words, wrestled with reality all his life but "finally won out over it".

Elwood is the only member of the cast (or audience* for that matter), who can see and converse with Harvey, an invisible six-foot three-inch mythical rabbit. The Players first brought Harvey to the Grange 30 years ago, and there are those local citizens who swear, despite the rabbit's "disappearance" after the last show of the 1986 run, that he never left. After all, he has the power to stop a clock so that no time passes. It is our joy to try to find out the truth by bringing the show back to the Grange for eight performances in March 2018.

Tickets for Harvey at the Grange may be purchased at the door, online, or by phone through Brown Paper Tickets at 800-838-3006. Per ticket convenience charges apply. All seating is "open" -- no assigned seats.

At the matinee performance on March 18, audio description of the show by the Metropolitan Washington Ear will be available for patrons with vision challenges.

Join us for a special presentation, Seeing the Rabbit: The Folklore of the Pooka, on March 18 after the matinee
