2nd Wednesday Theater: a monthly play-reading of rarely-performed classics, undiscovered gems, old chestnuts, and exciting new works.
Agnes Evans is a young woman grieving for her deceased teenaged sister, Tilly. As she leaves her childhood home in Ohio, Agnes finds Tilly’s Dungeons & Dragons notebook containing a game scenario created by her sister, whom she realizes she never really knew very well at all. She discovers that Tilly was a renowned D&D player, who was passionate about online fantasy gaming.
In order to unlock more secrets about her mysterious young sibling, Agnes recruits a dungeon master named Chuck to help her understand and grieve for Tilly. She soon stumbles into a journey of self-discovery and action-packed adventure in the imaginary world that was Tilly’s safe haven. Dramatic and comedic, and as full of ogres, elves and fantasy creatures as any episode of Game of Thrones, Qui Nguyen's "She Kills Monsters" is a surprisingly sweet tale of friendship, loss, and acceptance and an acknowledgement of the geek within us all.
"She Kills Monsters" is presented by Matt Kohler and the New Classics Theater Company.
