No More Harveys

By Chantal Bilodeau

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 and heads for Alaska to reunite with friends – and instead encounters the wonder of whales. 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.
