    Winner of the 2013 AATE Distinguished Play Award, She Kills Monsters is a comedic action packed jump into the world of fantasy role playing. She Kills Monsters introduces us to Agnes Evans a high school English teacher as she leaves her childhood home in Ohio following the death of her teenage sister, Tilly. When Agnes finds Tilly’s Dungeon and Dragons notebook, she stumbles into a journey of discovery and action-packed adventure in the imaginary world that was Tilly’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 performances will be held in the Kutz Theatre of the Lackland Performing Arts Center at 715 Grand Ave., Hackettstown, on the campus of Centenary University. Tickets She Kills Monsters are $12.50 for adults and $10.00 for children under 12 and $5.00 for Centenary University students.
