"She Kills Monsters 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 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."
All characters are high schoolers, although there is no age requirement for actors auditioning. There is some mild and lewd language, violence, and physical contact required for some characters. The audition sheet will ask actors to rate how comfortable they are with these various actions. This will assure actors are assigned to roles they are comfortable with and are blocked accordingly. Some characters may be double cast as needed.
