• Graphic: On a teal textured background, a mist rises out of an open book. In its center is a white outline of a 20-sided Dungeons and Dragons die, with the silhouette of a female-presenting character wielding a sword above her head in the center face of the die. There is a demon in the face to her left, a dragon in the face to her right, and an orc in the face below her. To the right floats the show title, "She Kills Monsters", by Qui Nguyen, with a sword replacing the “i” in Kills and the “t” in Monsters.
Join the Theatre Department for this heartwarming and hilarious romp through 90’s culture and fantasy role playing games, written by Qui Nguyen.

High school teacher Agnes Evans lives a completely average life until she uncovers a homebrew Dungeons and Dragons module deftly crafted by her late sister, Tilly. The module takes Agnes on a fantastic, witty, and action-packed adventure to defeat the legendary dragon Tiamat. However, the lines between the real world and the game world blur as personal secrets about Tilly come to light, and Agnes finds herself closer to her sister than ever before. This unapologetically geeky and heartfelt comedy will take you on a wild ride from start to finish.
