She Kills Monsters tells the story of high schooler Agnes Evans as she deals with the death of her younger sister, Tilly. When Agnes stumbles upon Tilly’s Dungeons & Dragons notebook, she finds herself catapulted into a journey of discovery and action-packed adventure in the imaginary world that was her sister’s 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.


Content Advisory: Off-stage death of family members, discussions of grief, staged violence and gore, depictions of bullying LGTBQIA+ youth, LGBTQIA+ slurs, PTSD, outdated humor and cultural references, sexual references, disability representation, ableist and strong language. Recommended for ages 12+.
