About the show
The play centers around high schooler Agnes Evans who deals with the death of her younger sister, Tilly. When Agnes stumbles upon Tilly’s Dungeons & Dragons notebook, she finds herself catapulted into a journey of discovery and action-packed adventure in the imaginary world that was her sister’s refuge. In this high-octane dramatic comedy laden with homicidal fairies, nasty ogres, and ’90s pop culture, the show offers a heart-pounding homage to the geek and warrior within us all.
Parental guidance suggested
She Kills Monsters is rated PG-13 and includes some adult language and mature themes such as death, sexuality, bullying, and fantasy inspired violence.
