CORONAVIRUS: All UK venues closed on 16th March 2020, work is underway to re-open safely. Some venues are showing on-line productions or outside productions - even a few covid safe internal ones and a number of tours and shows have been rescheduled for later in 2020 and throughout 2021. We are updating our listings as much as possible to reflect the changes as they are reported.
One of the longest running comedies in Broadway and West End history, Harvey has endeared generations of audiences with the relationship of the amiable Elwood P Dowd and his best friend, the 6'1" tall white rabbit which only he can see. Elwood's family are finally driven to committing him into Chumley's rest home for the mentally disturbed, and here the fun really starts. Doctor Chumley becomes convinced he, too, can see Harvey and, believing that the rabbit is a spirit of good fortune, attempts to charm him away from Elwood. The madness is catching, as everybody soon believes that Harvey is as large as life.Performers James Dreyfus (Elwood P. Dowd), Maureen Lipman (Veta), David Bamber (William R.
