What was high school like in 1995 in Athens, Ohio? She Kills Monsters: Young Adventurers Edition introduces the audience to the action-packed world of fantasy role-play, 90’s pop culture, and high school life in the Midwest in the 90’s.
The story begins with Agnes (Sally Hofmans-Curie) following the death of her sister, Tilly (Ellie Kahle). Agnes discovers Tilly’s Dungeons and Dragons notebook and takes a journey to discover her sister’s imaginary world and refuge. Along the way, she meets up with Chuck, the Dungeon Master (Spencer Browning), Lilith Morningstar (Kit Stephens), Kaliope Darkwalker (Maya Hanscel) and Orcus, the Demon Lord of the Underworld (Oscar Dunkle).
Throughout this heart-pounding voyage, Agnes not only masters the game and fantasy world, but also confronts the demons and difficulties that her sister and her party confront in the real- world. This play by acclaimed young playwright Qui Nguyen (writer on the TV Series The Society) offers a “heart-pounding homage to the geek warrior in us all!” - Samuel French.
*This production is rated PG-13 for adult themes, language and violence.
