Theater Performance

She Kills Monsters by Qui Nguyen

Directed by Professor Martin Shell

April 3-5, 8 p.m.

April 6, 2 p.m.

Appleton Auditorium, Fuller Arts Center

Average Agnes is finally leaving her childhood home following the death of her totally weird sister, Tilly. When she stumbles upon Tilly’s Dungeons & Dragons notebook, however, Agnes embarks on an action-packed adventure to discover more about her sister than she previously cared to know. A high-octane comedy fraught with hostile fairies, randy ogres, bloodthirsty cheerleaders, and ’90s pop culture, She Kills Monsters is a heart-pounding homage to the badass—and geek—within us all.

According to Eric Grode of The New York Times, “The whole enterprise is kind of dopey and kind of invigorating and kind of remarkable. It will slash and shapeshift its way into your heart.”

Suggested donations: General admission, $5; Students and senior citizens, $2
