She Kills Monsters is a dark comedy-adventure play by Qui Nguyen that debuted in 2011. It tells the story of Agnes Evans, an average young woman who loses her parents and younger sister in a car accident. Struggling to come to terms with her profound loss, Agnes embarks on an adventure to get to know her sister better by playing a Dungeons and Dragons module that her sister wrote, and discovers things she’d never imagined.
Moving through the real world, and the imaginary world her sister created before her death, Agnes uncovers secrets and experiences the deep struggles her sister faced during her tumultuous life. Along the way, she encounters a high school-aged Dungeon Master, a murderous fairy, maniacal cheerleaders, and a malevolent 5-headed dragon.
Since its 2011 New York City premiere, the play has wowed audiences of all ages, including millennials and Gen Zers, while being applauded for its nuanced portrayals of LGBTQ2S+ characters. The play makes its Windsor premiere with actor and director David Burrows at the helm. Burrows’ past Korda directing credits include Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike (2017), Company (2018) and Fun Home (2018). Burrows is currently directing 5 Lesbians Eating A Quiche, coming to The KordaZone stage in September 2022.
