The third instalment in the Arctic Cycle, a series of plays that looks at the social and environmental impacts of the climate crisis on the eight Arctic states

Harveys suck. Whether hurricanes or Hollywood producers, they prey on vulnerable people and ecosystems. Harveys especially prey on women, including the one 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 Harveys presents 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.
