Hollywood on Air

»My Friend Harvey« – The comedy classic as a live radio play: »There are two ways to get through life well, either you are very smart or very friendly. I used to be very smart, now I'm very friendly.« Elwood Dowd – the main character – is an unflappably amiable middle-aged recluse who carries a companion named Harvey with him wherever he goes. The only problem is, Harvey is a 6-foot-tall white rabbit who is invisible to everyone else – except Elwood. This circumstance results in a fast-paced, immensely funny game of errors and confusions, which, however, has a very philosophical core in its depths. For »Harvey« is a Hollywoodesque variation on the age-old motif of the fool who – without knowing it – calls the wisdom of life his own and thus frees the world from its wickedness.
