    Harvey is the 1944 Pulitzer Prize-winning comedic farce by Mary Chase. The play tells the story of Elwood P. Dowd, an affable man who claims to have an unseen (and presumably imaginary) friend Harvey — who is described as a six-foot, one-and-one-half-inch tall pooka, resembling an anthropomorphic rabbit. Elwood introduces Harvey to everyone he meets, much to the dismay of his social-climbing sister, Veta, who increasingly finds his eccentric behavior distressing, decides to have him committed to a sanitarium to spare herself and her daughter Myrtle Mae from future embarrassment and possible social scandal.
    When they arrive at the sanitarium, a comedy of errors ensues. The doctors commit Veta instead of Elwood, but when the truth comes out the search is on for Elwood and his invisible companion. When Elwood 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 the staff, including sanitarium director Dr. Chumley and his medical partner Dr. Sanderson. Only just before Elwood is to be given an injection that will make him into a "perfectly normal human being" does Veta realize that she'd rather have Elwood the same as he's always been — carefree and kind — even if it means living with Harvey.
