This play was written by Qui Nguyen and debuted in 2011.
“[It’s] a comedic romp into the world of fantasy and role-playing games,” according to CCU’s cultural arts website. “She Kills Monsters tells the story of Agnes Evans. Evans leaves her childhood home in Ohio following the death of her teenage sister, Tilly. When she finds Tilly’s “Dungeons and Dragons” notebook, she stumbles into a journey of discovery and action-packed adventure in the imaginary world that was Tilly’s refuge. Laden with homicidal fairies, nasty ogres, and ‘90s pop culture, playwright Qui Nguyen’s tale offers a heart-pounding homage to the greek and warrior in all of us.”
This adventure allows Evans to learn about a side of her sister that was once unknown.
“‘She Kills Monsters’ is a surprisingly sweet tale of friendship, loss and acceptance,” StageAgent said.
Tickets are $17 a piece and all performances will take place at the Edwards Theatre on campus.
It’s sure to be good, don’t miss it!
