The Theatre and Performance program's fall show, She Kills Monsters by Qui Nguyen, tells the story of Agnes Evans who, following the death of her teenage sister, Tilly, discovers Tilly’s Dungeons & Dragons notebook. Curious, she recruits an avid D&D player to guide her through this unknown world. She finds herself catapulted into a journey of discovery and action-packed adventure in the imaginary world that was her sister’s refuge.

This high-octane dramatic comedy, nestled in 90’s pop-culture, is filled with not only all the things’ Dungeons and Dragons has to offer: battles, spells, and monsters, but also explores themes of identity, grief, friendship, and the search to uncover a way to keep moving forward when it seems like you can’t.
