The winner of the 2013 Distinguished Play Award from the American Alliance for Theatre and Education (AATE), She Kills Monsters has been described as “a comedic romp into the world of fantasy role-playing games,” telling 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.”
