“She Kills Monsters”
Fall 2024

The Department of Theatre and Dance presents She Kills Monsters,  which explores issues of grief and bullying through a world of fantasy role-playing games! Alum Lucas Hatton (M.F.A., dramatic arts, ‘17) returns to direct the production.

The production performs Nov. 21, 22, 23 and  Dec. 5 and 6 at 7 p.m. and Nov. 23 and Dec. 7 at 2 p.m. in the Main Theatre, Wright Hall.  

Written by Qui Nguyen, She Kills Monsters tells the story of Agnes Evans as she leaves her childhood home 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 adventure in the imaginary world that was her sister’s refuge. This high-octane dramatic comedy is laden with homicidal fairies, nasty ogres, and 90s pop culture.

Content warning: Language and adult and LGBTQIA+ themes including violence, bullying and sexuality. 

Tickets will go on sale in fall 2024. 

The Department of Theatre and Dance is part of the UC Davis College of Letters and Science. For information about other department productions, visit theatredance.ucdavis.edu.
