SHE KILLS MONSTERS: VIRTUAL REALMS, designed specifically for online performances, tells the story of high school cheerleader Agnes Evans one year after the death of her younger teenage sister, Tilly. Stuck in Athens, Ohio, with no place to go and no plans for the future, Agnes discovers Tilly’s Dungeons & Dragons notebook. And through that notebook, she stumbles into a journey of discovery and action-packed adventure in the imaginary world of role-playing that was Tilly’s refuge. In this comedy-drama laden with homicidal fairies, nasty ogres, evil succubi, and 90s pop culture, playwright Qui Nguyen offers a heart-pounding and -wrenching homage to the geek and warrior within us all.
We will present SHE KILLS MONSTERS in serial format:

Devising a Community-Based Play: An Online Project │ November 2020
Collaboratively written, original student work
Conceived by Amy Steiger
Emerging from professor Amy Steiger’s fall 2020 class on Devising Community-Based Theater, this online project will present work-in-progress on the students’ collaboratively devised theater piece that will hopefully be fully realized in live performance in spring 2021 in the Bruce Davis Theater.
Since our season will be completely virtual during fall 2020, protocols for requesting Zoom invitations to online performances or for receiving a Vimeo password to stream performances will be published for each event as its opening approaches. Please check back periodically for updates to this page or look for announcements posted to the TFMS Facebook page or sent by email.
There is no charge for attending a performance, though, if the mood strikes, we ask you to “pay as you are able” at the Box Office, which is located in the Theater lobby of Montgomery Hall.
