About The Show:

A comedic romp into the world of fantasy role-playing games. She Kills Monsters tells the story of Agnes Evans as she leave her childhood home in Ohio following the death of her teenage sister, Tilly. When Agnes finds Tillys Dungeons & Dragons notebook, however, she stumbles into a journey of discovery and action-packed adventure in the imaginary world that was Tillys 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 shape-shift its way into your heart.” - New York Times

Packed with action, wit, and a sizable nerd-quotient, the production is a delight from start to finish.” - Theatre Mania

Positively slays the audience. Delightfully farcical.” - Stage & Cinema
