She Kills Monsters: Virtual Realms

She Kills Monsters: Virtual Realms tells the story of Agnes Evans as she leaves her childhood home in Ohio following the death of her teenage sister, Tilly.

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.

Now. Here. This.

This full-length, musical comedy follows the evolution and adventures of four friends in a natural history museum as they journey through time ― from the present day museum, to the past, and back again. Inspired by various exhibits (bees, reptiles, early man, ancient civilizations, and outer space), the four share their stories about friendship, hoarding, hiding, laughing, living, dying, and middle school in an attempt to step directly into that elusive “present moment”: the Now. Here. This.

Running time: 1 hour, 35 minutes
