She Kills Monsters

By Qui Nguyen

Through the discovery of her dead sister’s Dungeons and Dragons journal, Agnes learns that Tilly was as extraordinary in her real life as she was in her fantasy life. This high-octane dramatic comedy, chock full of homicidal fairies, evil ogres, and 90’s pop culture celebrates the geek warrior in all of us.

Directed by Stelle Salsbery (Johnston Center for Integrative Studies Senior)
