Theatre Department Presents “She Kills Monsters”

Truman’s Theatre Department’s performance of “She Kills Monsters” will open at 8 p.m. April 15 in the James G. Severns Theatre.

This comedic romp, penned by acclaimed young playwright Qui Nguyen, explores the world of fantasy role-playing games. Nguyen’s play follows Agnes Evans as she leaves her childhood home in Ohio following the death of her teenage sister, Tilly. When Agnes finds Tilly’s Dungeons & Dragon notebook, she stumbles into the imaginary world that was Tilly’s refuge. Agnes then begins her own journey of discovery in this action-packed adventure.

In “She Kills Monsters,” Nguyen creates a world laden with homicidal fairies, nasty ogres and ’90s pop culture, while offering a heart-pounding homage to the geek and warrior within us all.

This production of “She Kills Monsters” is directed by David Charles Goyette, with assistance by Bailey Jones, a senior theatre major.

There will be four performances running April 15-18. All will begin at 8 p.m. in the James G Severns Theatre in Ophelia Parrish. Tickets will be $5 and will go on sale approximately a week before the performance.
