About the Show

Elwood P. Dowd insists on including his friend Harvey in all of his sister Veta’s social gatherings. Trouble is, Harvey is an imaginary six and a half foot-tall rabbit.


Bobby Bodford is a veteran of stage and screen. As a professional director, playwright and actor, he has over 40 years experience. His directing credits include critically acclaimed productions of the Smoke on the Mountain Trilogy and Fiddler on the Roof  for Twin City Stage; and most recently, Avenue Q and Madagascar Jr. for Community Theatre Greensboro.
