'Harvey' is the Script in Hand at Westport

The Pulitzer Prize-winning comedy, “Harvey,” will be read by Westport Country Playhouse actor alumni and audience favorites Jayne Atkinson, Bill Buell, Brian Carter, Donald Corren, Andrea Maulella, Sarah Peterson and Mark Shanahan, and others to be announced, 7 pm Monday, March 22 at Westport Country Playhouse. Tickets to the one-night-only event are $15.

Directed by Anne Keefe, Playhouse artistic advisor, the reading is the second in the Script in Hand Series that brings together professional actors to read works by master playwrights. The new playreading series is a continuation of the highly successful “Funny Mondays” and “The Classical Series,” produced by the Playhouse from 2005 through 2008.

“Harvey” is the story of the affable Elwood P. Dowd and his presumably imaginary friend Harvey, a 6-foot-tall rabbit. When Elwood introduces Harvey to guests at a society party, his society-obsessed sister, Veta, has seen enough of his eccentric behavior. She decides to have Elwood committed to a sanitarium to spare the family from future embarrassment.
