A comedic romp into the world of fantasy role-playing games, in a new edition created specially
for High School performing groups! She Kills Monsters tells the story of high schooler
Agnes Evans as she deals with the death of her younger sister, Tilly. When Agnes stumbles
upon Tilly’s Dungeons & Dragons notebook, she fi nds 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.
"Deceptively breezy and rather ingenious. The whole enterprise is kind of dopey and kind of invigorating and kind of remarkable. It will slash and shapeshift its way into your heart." - The New York Times
"Packed with action, wit, and a sizable nerd-quotient, the production is a delight from start to finish" - Theatremania
"Positively slays the audience. Delightfully farcical."- Stage & Cinema
"Nguyen is a refreshing, break-the-rules writer — he has a ready embrace
of pop culture, high-school speak and 'High Fidelity' cool, and he also
has a mission to redeem gaming geeks everywhere...She Kills Monsters, delivers exactly what it promises, is generally a blast" - Chicago Tribune
