After the sudden and tragic death of her younger sister Tilly, Agnes Evans discovers a mysterious fantasy gaming notebook that offers clues into her sister’s life. Risking her own real-life relationships, Agnes enters the action-packed world of Dungeons and Dragons brimming with dominatrix warrior women, ogres and fairies to understand Tilly’s world and mourn her death. This touching story draws on nerd culture and queer representation to explore themes of sisterhood, loss and acceptance.

Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, TDPS has found creative solutions to keep teaching, learning, and creating in an online environment. Originally scheduled for the Kogod Theatre, She Kills Monsters has moved to Zoom and the livestream of this online performance will be on Thursday, May 7 at 8PM. The audience will experience the play in real time as it is performed by actors in their homes.

Playwright Qui Nguyen has given his full support and blessing to reimagine this play for the digital world.

“Nguyen is a refreshing, break-the-rules writer—he has a ready embrace of pop culture, high-school speak and ‘High Fidelity’ cool, and he also has a mission to redeem gaming geeks everywhere….” — Chicago Tribune
