Our next production is:
She Kills Monsters by Qui Nguyen – tickets are available online now!
By special permission from Samuel French, Inc., A Concord Theatricals Company
Our Senior class will bring to life their version of a fantasy role-playing game based on the work of acclaimed young playwright Qui Nguyen. We are first introduced to Agnes Evans as she prepares to leave the only home she has known. A home where she is haunted by the death of her teenage sister, Tilly, who she realizes she never really knew. As she packs, Agnes comes across Tilly’s notebook on Dungeons & Dragons where she enters the imaginary world Tilly created as a refuge and begins her own journey of self discovery. Homicidal fairies, nasty ogres, and lots of 90s pop culture are presented as a heart-pounding homage to the geek and warrior within us all.
Show Dates: November 14th – 16th @ 7:30 pm; November 17th @ 2 pm.
Most suitable for ages 16 and up
