Agnes dives into the world of Dungeons and Dragons on a quest to save her sister's soul. After the unexpected death of her sister Tilly, Agnes explores an unknown world of leather and armor, swords, and monsters of all kinds in an attempt to finally get to know her sibling.
A comedic romp into the world of fantasy role-playing games, 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, however, she stumbles into a journey of discovery and action-packed adventure in the imaginary world that was Tilly's refuge. 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.
