She Kills Monsters is a hilariously tender and action packed play is about Agnes, a young teacher in 1995, who tries to connect with her recently deceased teen sister, Tilly, through the only glimpse she had into her life: a Dungeon and Dragons campaign module. Agnes hesitantly dives into the world of geekdom and discovers that, inside the world of D&D, fantasy can give way to hidden truths. This show explores the themes of personal authenticity, sexual and gender identity, sibling bonds, grief, and the endurance of imagination.
