She Kills Monsters
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
