The Forest Roberts Theatre Presents
She Kills Monsters
By Qui Nguyen
Directed by Shelley Russell
Agnes Evans leaves her childhood home in Ohio following the death of her sister, Tilly. However, when Agnes finds Tilly's Dungeons & Dragons notebook, she is catapulted into a journey to save Tilly's soul. With homicidal fairies, cranky ogres, demons and '90s pop culture, She Kills Monsters offers a heart-pounding homage to the geek and warrior within us all.
