Elwood P. Dowd talks to everyone in the street and invites them to a dinner party.

His sister, Veta, has enough of her brother’s shenanigans and decides to have him committed to a sanitarium.

However, a doctor mistakenly assumes she is on the fringe of lunacy and plans to put her into a mental institution instead.

Director Sonia Dykstra said: ‘’The play takes a light hearted and funny look at how important friendship is, and how true friendship can withstand any challenge thrown at it.

“Given the challenging times we have all had over the last couple of years our friends and friendships have rarely been more important than they are now.

‘’We have an excellent cast which includes fine comedy actors Ian Tyler who plays Edward, last seen here as Jeeves in our critically acclaimed production of ‘Jeeves and Wooster in Perfect Nonsense’, Richard Sails playing William Chumley and Victoria Johnstone playing Veta Louise Simmons.”

Please note that, whilst Harvey is a comedy, and there is a matinee, this is not a pantomime and it is not a play suitable for younger children.

Tickets priced £10 members, £12 visitors are available from greenroomwilmslow.org.uk or 01625 540933.

The box office is open on Saturdays from 11am to 12 noon.
