In Harvey, Elwood P. Dowd is charming and kind with one character flaw: an unwavering friendship with a 6-foot-tall, invisible white rabbit named Harvey. In order to save the family's social reputation, Elwood's sister Veta takes him to the local sanatorium.

The show's cast includes Ben Dibble as Elwood P. Dowd, Mary Martello as Veta Louise Simmons, Ellie Mooney as Myrtle Mae, Greg Wood as William R. Chumley, M.D., Ian Merrill Peakes as Lyman Sanderson, M.D., Lauren Sowa as Ruth Kelly, R.N., Susan Riley Stevens as Betty Chumley and Ethel Chauvenet, Dan Olmstead as Duane Wilson, Fran Prisco as E.J. Lofgren, and H. Michael Walls as Judge Omar Gaffney.
