Dive into the world of fantasy role-playing games! 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 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 90s pop culture, acclaimed young playwright Qui Nguyen offers a heart-pounding homage to the geek and warrior within us all.

A haunting protest against the dehumanizing tendencies of modern societies and a powerful affirmation of the human spirit, the play takes place after the “revolution” in a surrealistic and Kafkaesque world. Three brothers, old style “desperadoes” from the Wild West have been summoned out of the 19thCentury to Nogoland, by the single individual who is trying to throw off the yoke of his inhuman oppressors.
