Agnes never really ‘got’ her geeky teenage sister Tilly and they were certainly never close. When Tilly dies unexpectedly this emotional distance haunts Agnes as she tries to navigate her grief.

While clearing out Tilly’s room, Agnes discovers she was a passionate Dungeons and Dragons player. Enlisting the help of a ‘Dungeon Master’, Chuck, she journeys into the unknown, the world of online gaming, as she attempts to discover who her sister really was.

Reality and fantasy collide in this comedic, camp and touching exploration of friendship, self-discovery and grief.

Directed by Gitika Buttoo who recently completed her tenure as staff director at The National Theatre and is artistic associate of Birmingham Opera Company.

Performed by third-year Acting students as part of their Youth in Revolt season.

This amateur production of “She Kills Monsters” is presented by arrangement with Concord Theatricals Ltd. on behalf of Samuel French Ltd.

Contains some strong language and mild adult scenes. Recommended for 14+.
