Ana was a contemporary bilingual play written and developed in collaboration between Quebec and Scottish theatre companies. the play sought to blend the rhythms of scots-English with Canadian-French to dissolve the barriers between language to explore a space that words alone could not describe. the creative team and cast were a combination of Scottish and Canadian writers, directors, designers, actors and producers. The play tells the story of a character called Ana over 600 years to be played by 6 different actors. the design challenge was to capture the mythical, fable like quality of the story whilst storytelling clearly with the play's unique challenges. the magical and the practical needed to be in balance. Megan achieved this by designing all Ana characters in red, using silhouette to define history and culture to achieve a kind of poetic, heightened expression of the play's mythical quality without losing its humanity and earth.
The play toured Quebec and Scotland as a stage performance and was also made into a 3D film.
