The third play in the award-winning Arctic Cycle on the impact of climate change
Harveys suck. Whether hurricanes or Hollywood producers, Harveys are overpowered forces primed to prey on vulnerable people and ecosystems. Harveys especially prey on women, including the woman in No More Harveys, who flees her abusive husband – coincidentally named Harvey. Looking to forge a new path forward in a life gone astray, she heads for Alaska to trace the evolutionary path of the humpback whales. But migration isn’t as straightforward as it seems, especially given shifting climates and an ecosystem primed to seek perfect homeostasis.
In turns funny, insightful, and moving, No More Harveyspresents a world dominated by colonialism, capitalism, and patriarchy where the problems that plague our communities, be we women or whales, share the same gnarled roots.
No More Harveys is the third play of the Arctic Cycle, a series of eight plays that looks at the social and environmental impacts of the climate crisis on the eight Arctic states. It follows Sila, set in Canada, and Forward, set in Norway.
