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.

About the Playwright: Olga Sanchez served as the Artistic Director of Milagro, the NW’s premier Latino arts & culture organization from 2003-2015. An actor, director, writer and educator originally from NYC, she earned her BA in Theatre from Hunter College. A founding member of Los Porteños writers’ group, she regularly pens a column on local Latino arts & culture for El Hispanic News. Her fiction has been published by Elektrik Milk Bath Press, Rio Grande Press and Rain City Projects. This past fall, she co-wrote ¡O ROMEO!, a Drammy Award winning production for Outstanding Achievement in Devised Work, in which Shakespeare meets el Dia de los Muertos.

About the Director: Ajai Terrazas Tripathi graduated from Oregon State University with a BA in Theatre. Ajai has directed and produced Stories of Discrimination and two original plays, The Death Rattle and The Anti-Bullying Project. This is his seventh year in the Milagro touring company as a performer and teaching artist.
