Award-winning drama opens in Highlands

The second show of the Highlands Playhouse’s 73rd season is set to open on Thursday, July 17.

“Harvey,” a play about Elwood P. Dowd, who claims to have an unseen — and presumably imaginary — friend named Harvey, a six-foot-tall rabbit.  The play won a Pulitzer Prize for drama, and was made into a film starring James Stewart.

Frank Collison is starring as Elwood. Collison has been seen in recent films including “The Happening,” “The Village,” and “O Brother, Where Art Thou.”

Tickets are on sale now for this limited run, July 14 to 17 and July 19 to 24. 828.526.2695.
