DWU Theatre to present drama-comedy

Posted on

The Ron and Sheilah Gates Department of Theatre will open the 2022-23 season with “She Kills Monsters,” a drama-comedy by Qui Nguyen, on Fridays and Saturdays, Oct. 14-15 and 21-22 at 7:30 p.m. and Sundays, Oct. 16 and 23 at 2 p.m. in the DWU Black Box Theatre. 

Directed by Chair and Professor of Theatre Daniel L. Miller, “She Kills Monsters” tells the story of Agnes Evans, an average woman who loses her parents and little sister, Tilly, in a car accident.  Having been very distant from her sister while she was alive, Agnes embarks on an adventure to get to know her sister better by playing a Dungeons & Dragons module that Tilly had written.  Agnes discovers things she’d never imagined.  The plot takes place in reality and in the imaginary game world.  Agnes learns about Tilly’s exploration with life, her friends and how she struggled with her sexuality in “real life.”

General Admission tickets are $10 per person.  Tickets are available in advance at https://store.dwu.edu/theatre.
