Staged Reading - She Kills Monsters

by Qui Nguyen, directed by Benjamin Grubb.
One night only, Monday, January 7th, 2019, 8 p.m. Live Oak Theatre

She Kills MonstersA 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.  3 males and 6 females in the cast.

Ben Grubb (Director) has acted with Actors Ensemble for the past decade in plays such as True West, Passion Play, and Panhandle. Previous directing credits include Speed-the-Plow, The Wager, and Billy Bishop Goes to War.
