She Kills Monsters: Virtual Realms

by Qui Nguyen

About the Show: 

First performed in 2011, She Kills Monsters earned high acclaim as a love letter to the nerds, the geeks, and the queer community. Qui Nguyen’s script follows Agnes Evans on her journey to connect with her deceased sister, Tilly Evans. As she packs away Tilly’s room, Agnes discovers that her sister lives on in the whimsical world of Dungeons and Dragons, a fantastical role playing game. Agnes befriends and battles demons, elves, and fairies in her quest to meet the most authentic version of her sister.
