Harvey is the Pulitzer Prize winning play be Mary Chase.  It is one of the most successful and popular comedies ever released for production by Community Theatre groups. 

The story is about an affable man Elwood P. Dowd and his unseen to all but Elwood, presumably imaginary friend Harvey, a six-foot, three-and-one-half-inch tall rabbit.  his society-obsessed sister, Veta, has seen as much of his eccentric behavior as she can tolerate. She decides to have him committed to a sanitarium. 

When they arrive at the sanitarium, due to a comedy of errors, the doctors commit Veta instead of Elwood.  They soon discover the mistake and look for Elwood. 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.  Just before Elwood is to be given an injection, Dr. Chumley's Formula 977, that will make him supposedly normal, Veta realizes that she'd rather have Elwood be the same as he's always been — carefree and kind — even if it means living with Harvey.
