After high school cheerleader, Agnes, comes across the elaborate Dungeons & Dragons notebook of her dead sister, she suddenly finds herself at the center of an all out campaign — joining with mages and elves to clash with slothful ogres, killer fairies, and teenage succubi on a journey to discover the secret life of the sibling she lost.
The emotionally-driven and highly comedic SHE KILLS MONSTERS was one of the most produced plays of the last five years. When the pandemic hit, author Qui Nyguen (VIETGONE, RAYA AND THE LAST DRAGON) reimagined his popular script, placing it a VIRTUAL REALM which created exciting opportunities to craft fantastical character masks and costuming through new media and digital filters.
“Ingenious” - says Eric Grode, NYT
“a huge, geeky triumph” - MercuryNews.com
Be advised: SHE KILLS MONSTERS: VIRTUAL REALMS contains content surrounding sibling death, discussion of suicide, and depictions of the bullying of LGTBQ+ youth, as well as some mild language. Please contact the box office at Theater@Temple.edu with any questions.
