After Theater Pizza Party at DWPC: 4:30 p.m.
We have entered as strangers…soon we have friends.
The affable Elwood P. Dowd has developed a life of contentment that he shares with his best friend: a 6-foot-tall pooka rabbit. But his eccentric ways are increasingly threatening to his sister’s social aspirations, and she resolves to have him committed to a sanitarium — until plans go awry and she ends committed instead. The play won the 1945 Pulitzer Prize, and in 1950 was an Oscar-nominated film starring James Stewart. This classic comedy challenges our assumptions of what – and who – is normal, and whether that’s something we want to be anyhow.
Mary Coyle Chase, Harvey, and James Stewart, 1950
Join the fun, as we honor our star DWPC past member, Rocky Mountain News reporter and playwright Mary Coyle Chase (1906-1981), and our distinguished DWPC literary heritage, by attending this exciting new production of “Harvey.” We’ll enjoy the matinee performance, then re-convene at the DWPC clubhouse 1 block away for after theater food, fun, and conversation.
It’s two-step process!
