What’s a Pooka?

Harvey by Mary Chase is a timeless classic comedy. It will be presented by Warren Players at the historic Struthers Library Theatre in Warren Thursday through Saturday, May 16-18, at 8 p.m., and on Sunday, May 19, at 2 p.m.

Harvey is the story of Elwood P. Dowd and his best friend, Harvey. The play takes places in the early 1940s and revolves around the fact that Elwood’s family thinks he is crazy because Harvey is invisible. Harvey is a delightful play which ran on Broadway for almost five years. It was later made into a movie with Jimmy Stewart as Elwood.

Our cast has captured the true comedic essence of Mary Chase’s play. The cast consists of: Mark Hurst, Karin Davidson, Dawn Sears, K Cruickshank, Ron Keeney, Jean Gomory, Michael Sternberg, Tom Devereaux, Denis Meabon, Melissa Port, and Bill Hill, Jr. Bill Hill played Elwood in Warren Players 1985 version of Harvey and portrays the feisty taxi driver in our version. Lou Cable is the director with Corey Gordon as her assistant.

If you have never seen Harvey or even if you have seen it 100 times, you need to come see this wonderful comedy. Harvey is appropriate for all age groups and would be a great family outing or a great date night. Or if you just want a nice fun evening for yourself come and see it. You’ll be glad you did!
