World Premiere at Cyrano’s! NO MORE HARVEYS follows the migration of females – both human and animal – against a backdrop of climate change. It’s a world in flux where women emerge not as victims but as survivors. “Whether it’s hurricanes or Hollywood producers, Harvey’s suck, let’s start with that.” or so says the woman in NO MORE HARVEYS, who has “migrated,” from her abusive husband – also named Harvey. She embarks on a journey to Alaska to reunite with two of her friends, looking at the evolutionary path of whales to try to sort herself out and see a way forward.
This one-woman play is inclusive and representative of the many people who live in Alaska, sparking conversations about social and environmental disruptions, and giving voice to women on the frontline of climate change. Playwright Bilodeau offers this 3rd play of her Arctic Climate Change series (her first play the Canadian SILA was at Cyrano’s in 2016) with the American installment and world premiere, at Cyrano’s Theatre.
