She Kills Monsters

She Kills Monsters is Qui Nguyen’s play about the powerful role of story and imagination to healing, and how nerds, geeks, and gamers are the absolute best ever. She Kills Monsters is the story of Agnes Evans, a cishet female English teacher living in Ohio who wanted her entire life to be as mortally normal a human girl as possible. A year after the loss of her parents and younger sister, Tilly, in a car accident, Agnes discovers a Dungeons & Dragons module Tilly created. In an attempt to make understand her sister, Agnes ventures into the imaginary D&D world of New Landia.
