She Kills Monsters was written by Vietnamese American playwright Qui Nguyen and was originally produced in 2011. It is a comedic romp into the world of fantasy role-playing games, the play 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.
“I think this show will be something the Lakeway Area has never seen”, says director David Horton. “It’s a great comedy; with action, sword-fights, crazy characters, touching moments and of course, monsters.” You can see some behind the scenes stuff on our #MonsterMonday Instagram and Facebook posts. The Theatre Guild will be in partnership with Frightmare Manor as they perform the show next door at the Plantation and Event Venue Great Smoky Farm in Morristown.
