Theatre Association NEST presents, in collaboration with Emoe Productions, a dramatic comedy filled with Dungeons and Dragons elements.

She Kills Monsters tells the story of Agnes Evans following the death of her teenage sister, Tilly. Agnes was never close to Tilly because they were interested in completely different things; Agnes loved mainstream pop culture, while Tilly had a passion for everything classified as nerdy or geeky, with a special love for Dungeons & Dragons. When Agnes finds Tilly’s Dungeons & Dragons notebook, however, she finds herself catapulted into a journey of discovery and action-packed adventure in the imaginary world that was her sister’s refuge.

She discovers that Tilly was a well-known Dungeons & Dragons player, and that she was passionate about fantasy gaming. In order to unlock more secrets about her mysterious young sibling, Agnes recruits a “Dungeon Master” named Chuck to help her understand and grieve Tilly. As she delves deeper into her quest, the fantasy world and reality begin to collide and mix as Agnes searches to connect with Tilly and realizes how much of her sister she never knew.

Chock-full of varying characters designed by the players, She Kills Monsters is a surprisingly sweet tale of friendship, loss, and acceptance. 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” is presented by arrangement with Concord Theatricals on behalf of Samuel French inc. www.concordtheatricals.com

{DESCLONG}

Na een periode van grote droogte is het waterverbruik aan banden gelegd en moet men betalen om te mogen plassen. De arme bevolking heeft niet genoeg geld, er wordt streng gehandhaafd en de nood is hoog. Maar dan ontketent Bobby Goud een opstand tegen Reinhard W. Kleinhart, de directeur van het bedrijf dat het recht om te plassen beheert.
Bobby heeft namelijk van de lieve Lot geleerd naar zijn hart te luisteren. Dat Lot ook de dochter is van Kleinhart leidt tot aparte situaties.

Urinetown is een hilarische musical satire op kapitalisme, maatschappelijke verantwoordelijkheid, populisme, privatisering van natuurlijke hulpbronnen, bureaucratie, politiek, het rechtssysteem en het musical genre; waar je hoognodig naar toe moet!

{TITLE}Medea{/TITLE}

{DESC}NEST voert het beroemde verhaal van Medea op, maar dan in de moderne wereld.{/DESC}

{DESCLONG}

Het originele verhaal van Medea uit 431 vertelde hoe de koningsdochter Medea verliefd werd op prins Jason, die samen onderweg was om met de andere Argonauten het gulden vlies te halen. Zij trouwden en kregen twee kinderen. Tien jaar later wilde Jason trouwen met de dochter van de koning van Korinthe. Medea was het hier niet mee eens, en ze vermoordde de koning en zijn dochter. Daarna bracht ze haar eigen kinderen om het leven om Jason te straffen met kinderloosheid.

Echter zult u niet dit originele verhaal ten tonele zien verschijnen. In deze hedendaagse versie heeft Medea drie gezichten: de moeder, de echtgenote, en de vrouw. Anno 2023 lijdt ze aan bindingsangst en is ze psychose gevoelig. Haar net opbloeiende relatie met Jason zorgt ervoor dat haar psychose getriggerd wordt en ze wordt opgenomen in een psychiatrische inrichting. Waanbeelden teisteren haar en niemand kan haar helpen. Haar gedachten leiden haar het diepe in. Dit is haar verhaal.

A cargo freighter on its way to the planet Phobos. A crew in charge of a failing ship with a disruptive cast of passengers. Will they be able to reach their destination when the long reaching arm of their corporate overlord throws them off course? Or will this be the beginning of the end?

From the makers of The Worst One Yet comes a new exciting performance. Over a period of four months the group of ambitious students created their own original play. Attempting to combine having fun with intense dramatic moments through sheer unhinged creativity. The result: a blend of genres, humorous absurdity, and catastrophic meltdowns.
