About the Show:
She Kills Monsters by Qui Nugyen is a darkly comedic fantasy. The story takes place in 1995, and centres on Agnes Evans who, at the beginning of the play, loses her teen sister Tilly to a fatal car crash. Through the process of cleaning out her room, Agnes discovers a handmade Dungeons and Dragons module written by Tilly before she died. In order to learn more about the sister she will never truly get to know in life, Agnes jumps head first into Tilly’s D&D fantasy. Throughout her adventure Agnes encounters elfs, demon overlords, succubus cheerleaders, and dragons. She Kills Monsters deals with life, loss, kicking ass and awesome 90’s pop culture references.
