Take a comedic romp into the world of fantasy role play games with Sinclair Theatre’s presentation of She Kills Monsters, by Qui Nguyen, Oct. 8-16, in Blair Hall Theatre, in building 2 of Sinclair’s downtown Dayton campus.
This high-octane comedy is directed by Chris Harmon and features fight choreography by Joshua Pikar. It’s the story of Agnes Evans as she leaves her childhood home in Ohio following the death of her teenage sister, Tilly. When Agnes finds Tilly’s Dungeons & Dragons notebook, however, she finds herself catapulted into a journey of discovery and action-packed adventure in the imaginary world that was her sister’s refuge.
