She Kills Monsters, a play by Qui Nguyen

  • The Playwrights' Center 2301 East Franklin Avenue Minneapolis, MN, 55406 United States (map)

"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."

This show features fantastical combat, monstrous puppet creatures, and a dance off.  What else do you need? Combining high spectacle with an exploration of family relationships, loss, and what it means to be an outcast, "She Kills Monsters" is squarely in the Six Elements' wheelhouse.
