The OES Visual, Performing, & Musical Arts Department Presents:

She Kills Monsters by Qui Nguyen

Feb 28–March 2, 2024

Directed by: Lauren Cuellar


A contemporary dramatic comedy set in 1995 Athens Ohio, She Kills Monsters tells the story of high schooler Agnes as she deals with the death of her younger sister.  When Agnes stumbles upon Tilly’s “Dungeons and Dragons” notebook, she finds herself catapulted into an action-packed adventure alongside homicidal fairies and nasty ogres that fill the imaginary world that was her younger sister’s refuge.  This high-octane play deals with themes that celebrate LGBTQ identity, acceptance by one’s family, as well as overcoming bullying based on stereotypes and stigmas.

Please join us for a Preshow Reception on Friday, March 1 at 6 p.m. in the US Lobby. Beverages and appetizers will be provided by Parent Partnership and the Development Office until curtains up at 7 p.m. We look forward to seeing you there!
