She Kills Monsters (By Qui Nguyen) is a funny, irreverent, gory, sexy, and surprisingly touching journey into the world of Dungeons & Dragons and the fraught relationship between two sisters. When Agnes finds her dead sister's Dungeon Master notebook, she must join the campaign to save her sister’s soul from Tiamat, and kill a ton of monsters along the way. Bugbears, Dark Elves, Demon Queens, Quantum Leap-obsessed devils, and cheerleading succubi, She Kills Monsters has something for everyone!
Performs July 7-9, Eastworks in Easthampton, more details and tickets coming soon!
