About the Play

She Kills Monsters 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 is 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.

Featuring a diverse cast of characters of powerful female warriors, mythical creatures, and even a few demons, the story is filled with action-packed fight scenes, witty one-liners, and a queer love story. While steeped in the world of D&D, She Kills Monsters is a thrilling theatrical experience for everyone - even those who’ve never played the game before.
