The new production of Mary Chase’s Pulitzer Prize-winning comedy Harvey directed by Lindsay Posner and starring James Dreyfus as Elwood P. Dowd and Maureen Lipman as Veta Louise Simmons, will play a limited season at London’s Theatre Royal Haymarket from Tuesday 17 March until Saturday 2 May.  The production will first open at Birmingham Repertory Theatre on 6 February, running until 21 February. After Birmingham, the production will play in Malvern from 24 to 28 February and Richmond from 3 to 7 March.

Elwood P. Dowd has only one character flaw: an unwavering friendship with a six-foot tall, invisible rabbit named Harvey.  In order to save the family's reputation, Elwood's sister Veta takes him to see psychiatrist Dr William Chumley.  But when the doctor mistakenly commits anxiety-ridden Veta instead of her brother, it sets off an hilarious whirlwind of confusion and chaos as everyone tries to catch a man and his invisible rabbit.

Joining James Dreyfus and Maureen Lipman in the 2015 production are David Bamber as William R. Chumley, Desmond Barrit as Judge Omar Gaffney, Felicity Dean as Betty Chumley, Ingrid Oliver as Myrtle Mae Simmons, Amanda Boxer as Miss Ethel Chauvenet, Sally Scott as Nurse Ruth Kelly, Youssef Kerkour as Duane Wilson, Jack Hawkins as Lyman Sanderson and Linal Haft as E J Lofgren.
