Summer on Stage: She Kills Monsters
by Qui Nguyen
Directed by Israel Jiménez
A comedic romp into the world of fantasy role-playing games. She Kills Monsters tells the story of high-schooler Agnes Evans as she deals with the death of her younger sister, Tilly. When Agnes finds Tilly’s Dungeons & Dragons notebook, however, she stumbles into a journey of discovery and action-packed adventure in the imaginary world that was Tilly’s refuge. In this high-octane dramatic comedy laden with homicidal fairies, nasty ogres, and 90’s pop culture, acclaimed young playwright Qui Nguyen offers a heart-pounding homage to the geek and warrior within us all.
