Esker Mike and His Wife, Agiluk

By Herschel Hardin

Esker Mike & His Wife, Agiluk is a social satire about Eskimo life in the Mackenzie River Delta and how it is affected by white settlers, priests and government officials. The play is also a tragic reflection on the role of women who are forced to bear children in a society that cannot afford to support them.

“A fascinating, moving, and ultimately a very beautiful play.”
