The Chemainus production of “Harvey” is truly wonderful. I have always been deeply moved by the story and in this interpretation, there is all around great acting and a really magical transition from a grey world to one that pops with colour. I was reminded of exotic birds – revealing their glorious plumage in a dance of life. What a great symbol to represent the tension between our inner lives and the constraints of reality. To me “Harvey” is a gentle and perfect exploration of the things that really matter.
Deryk caught a photo of me at the reception evening and I’m posting some other photos as well. I hope that light shining through coloured glass does a bit of what “Harvey” does: adding brightness to the everyday world.
