comedy in two acts
using the translation of István Örkény, the adaptation for Vígszínház was made by Krisztina Kovács and Péter Valló.
The title hero of the grotesque comedy by Mary Chase is a gigantic white rabbit called Harvey. Although Harvey, the best friend of Uncle Elwood, is claimed only to exist in Elwoods head, he still causes a lot of issues and misunderstandings in real life.
Still, sometimes all of us would need a friend like Harvey, who helps us through solitude, helps dealing with disappointments and bearing other people, shortly said, bearing life. Because Harvey is so polite, understanding, very funny and is a great entertainer.
The play in Hungary happened with the mediation of Theatre Mundi Theatre and Literature Agency. (www.theatrum-mundi.hu)
