SHE KILLS MONSTERS: YOUNG ADVENTURES EDITION
BY QUI NGUYEN
Artstrek students leap into the depths of theatre and embrace the creative process through five daily classes: Acting, Devising, Design, Voice, and Movement. All of these classes are focused on a single play of study. Our focus in 2022 will be She Kills Monsters: Young Adventurers Edition by Qui Nguyen.
She Kills Monsters: Young Adventurers Edition tells the story of high schooler Agnes Evans as she deals with the death of her younger sister, Tilly. When Agnes stumbles upon Tilly’s Dungeons & Dragons notebook, she finds herself catapulted into a journey of discovery and action-packed adventure in the imaginary world that was her sister’s refuge. In this high-octane dramatic comedy laden with deadly fairies, nasty ogres, and ’90s pop culture, acclaimed playwright Qui Nguyen offers a heart-pounding homage to the geek and warrior within us all.
She Kills Monsters: Young Adventures Edition received its world premiere Off Off Broadway at The Flea Theatre in New York City in 2011 under the artistic director Jim Simpson, producing director Carol Ostrow, and managing director Beth Dembrow.
