SHE KILLS MONSTERS
By Qui Nguyen
Directed by Butch Alice


Seeking Lvl 1+ Clerics, Paladins, and Rogues! Director and Master Monster Maker Butch Alice returns to Theater Schmeater to wield the reins of this fanstastical show: an ode to geek culture, 90s pop nostalgia, and the outcast in all of us.
She Kills Monsters tells the story of Agnes Evans as she moves out of her childhood home in Ohio following the death of her teenage sister, Tilly. When Agnes finds Tilly’s Dungeons & Dragons notebook, however, she dives headfirst into the action-packed, imaginary world that was Tilly’s refuge.
