About the Play: Ana is disparaged by her friends for not being fashionable or technologically cool enough. At night Ana dreams of a consumer monster that attacks her old family things. She becomes “Super Ana”, battling the monster by giving it a swift lesson that saves her family’s treasures and the planet too.
