At some point in their lives many women will suffer from mental health issues. Inspired by the ancient Sumerian goddess Inanna's decent into the underworld, ANA challenges the roles created by society for women and raises questions around madness and depression and why the latter affects so many more women than men.


Some of Scotland and Quebec's leading theatre practitioners have teamed up with this production to create a multi faceted reflection on the perplexities and consequences of mental health issues and women who challenge convention. This collaboration will culminate in a unique, courageous, bilingual and thought provoking piece of theatre which will claim international appeal.
