She Kills Monsters: Young Adventurer's Edition

She Kills Monsters: Young Adventurer's Edition

Presented by Shady Side Academy Senior School at Hillman Center for the Performing Arts - Peter J. Kountz Theater

She Kills Monsters tells the story of Agnes Evans as she faces her final year of high school in Ohio following the death of her teenage sister, Tilly. When Agnes finds Tilly’s Dungeons & Dragons notebook, however, she finds herself catapulted into a journey of discovery and action-packed adventure in the imaginary world that was her sister’s refuge. In this high-octane dramatic comedy laden with homicidal fairies, nasty ogres, and ’90s pop culture, acclaimed playwright Qui Nguyen offers a heart-pounding homage to the geek and warrior within us all.

She Kills Monsters: Young Adventurers Edition is presented by arrangement with Concord Theatricals on behalf of Samuel French, Inc.  www.concordtheatricals.com
