UNCG Theatre’s “She Kills Monsters”

Actress in the production, "She kills monsters"UNCG Theatre presents “She Kills Monsters” by Qui Nguyen and directed by Jim Wren in the Taylor Theatre.  A 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. Performances are at 7:30 p.m. on February 11 and 18; 8 p.m. on February 12, 13, 19 and 20; and 2 p.m. on February 14 and 21.
