In this high-octane dramatic comedy laden with homicidal fairies, nasty ogres, and '90s pop culture, acclaimed young playwright Qui Nguyen offers a heart-pounding homage to the geek and warrior within us all.

"[D]eceptively breezy and rather ingenious . . . It will slash and shapeshift its way into your heart." —New York Times

She Kills Monsters tells the story of Agnes Evans as she leaves her childhood home in Ohio following the death of her teenage sister, Tilly.

When Agnes finds Tilly's Dungeons & Dragons notebook, she stumbles into a journey of discovery and action-packed adventure in the imaginary world that was Tilly's refuge.

"[C]lever, funny, moving, lively, and delightfully geeky . . . generally a blast." —Chicago Tribune

In 2013, She Kills Monsters won the American Alliance for Theatre & Education's Distinguished Play Award (upper and secondary school age category), honoring "the most outstanding plays for young people."

This play contains strong language and mild adult themes.
