She Kills Monsters
By Qui Nguyen
Directed by David Negaard
A Dungeons and Dragons/sword fighting fantasy with a heart comes to life at the Historic Iao Theater!
She Kills Monsters tells the story of Agnes Evans as she leaves her childhood home in Ohio following the death of her teenage sister, Tilly. 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. 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.
Nguyen’s comedic yet heartwarming coming of age story deals with the tough, but very real and relatable topics of family, love, loss, grief and LGBTQ+ identity.
