When Agnes Evans loses her entire family in a car accident, she is forced to confront an uncomfortable truth: she never really knew her geeky younger sister, Tilly. Though not a player herself, Agnes enlists the help of neighborhood uber-nerd, Chuck, to help her play the Dungeons and Dragons campaign that Tilly had written. Through the action of the game, Agnes discovers more about Tilly’s strength, wit, and the realities Tilly faced being a part of the LGBTQIA+ community than she would ever have imagined.
In this high-octane dramatic comedy laden with homicidal fairies, nasty ogres, and 90s pop culture, acclaimed playwright Qui Nguyen offers a heart-pounding homage to the geek and warrior within us all.
“It will slash and shapeshift its way into your heart.”
– The New York Times
“Nguyen is a refreshing, break-the-rules writer – he has a ready embrace of pop culture, high-school speak and ‘High Fidelity’ cool, and he also has a mission to redeem gaming geeks everywhere… She Kills Monsters delivers exactly what it promises, is generally a blast.”
– Chicago Tribune
She Kills Monsters will be directed by Ezri Lutz, with Ashley Lora-Lee producing. Special Thanks to Dustin Karrat for fight choreography, and to Pennsylvania Pole Academy and Emily Cipriano for dance choreography.
The Village Players of Hatboro invites their audience members to attend the show in costume if they wish.
Make sure to dress in your best renaissance faire or fantasy costume (think fairies, elves, orcs, or whatever you can dream up–get as creative as you want). Whatever costume you plan to wear this Halloween is also appropriate. Each night of the show, the director will choose their favorite costume of the evening and the wearer will receive a prize and be featured on VPH’s social media!
