More about She Kills Monsters
Playwright: Qui Nguyen

A romp into the world of fantasy role-playing games! In this high-octane dramatic comedy laden with homicidal fairies, nasty ogres, and 90s pop culture, acclaimed playwright Qui Nguyen offers a heart-pounding homage to the geek and warrior within us all.

She Kills Monsters tells the story of Agnes Evans, an average woman who loses her parents and little sister, Tilly, in a car accident. Having been very distant from her sister while she was alive, Agnes embarks on an adventure to get to know her sister better by playing a Dungeons & Dragons module that Tilly had written, and discovers things she’d never imagined. The plot takes place in reality and in the imaginary game world.

Content Warning: This play contains mature subject matter, the use of homophobic language and actions, discussion of the death of a minor, and depictions of fantasy violence.
