Collective Face Theatre Ensemble presents: "Harvey"


  • Kennedy Fine Arts Building (map)

The Collective Face Theatre Ensemble in partnership wit SSU Players by the Sea is proud to present our 2nd offering of the 2017/2018 season, Mary Chase's 1945 Pulitzer Prize winner, Harvey. Many of you will be familiar with the film adaptation starring Jimmy Stewart, but the the similarities end there. This is not your parents' Harvey. This is definitely a Collective Face interpretation.

Elwood P. Dowd is an affable man who claims to have an unseen (and presumably imaginary) friend Harvey — whom Elwood describes as a six-foot, three-and-one-half-inch tall pooka resembling an anthropomorphic rabbit. Elwood introduces Harvey to everyone he meets. His social-climbing sister, Veta, increasingly finds his eccentric behavior embarrassing. She decides to have him committed to a sanitarium. When they arrive at the sanitarium, a comedy of errors ensues
