She Kills Monsters
Written by Qui Nguyen
Presented by Collin Theatre Center
Directed and Choreographed by Robin Armstrong
A dark comedy set in the world of fantasy role-playing games, She Kills Monsters explores the heroic tale of Agnes as she comes to terms with the death of her sister, Tilly. When she finds Tilly’s Dungeons & Dragons campaign book she embarks on an adventure into Tilly’s preferred reality. In this high-octane comedy replete with homicidal fairies, nasty ogres, and more cosplay than you can shake a quarterstaff at, acclaimed playwright Qui Nguyen, (Vietgone, Living Dead in Denmark) offers a heart-pounding homage to the geek and warrior within us all.
