She Kills Monsters by Qui Nguyen
Summary: She Kills Monsters tells the story of high schooler Agnes Evans as she deals with the death of her younger sister, Tilly. When Agnes stumbles upon Tilly’s Dungeons & Dragons notebook, she finds herself catapulted into a journey of discovery and action-packed adventure in the imaginary world that was her sister’s refuge. In this high-octane dramatic comedy laden with bloodthirsty fairies, nasty ogres, and ’90s pop culture, acclaimed playwright Qui Nguyen offers a heart-pounding homage to the geek and warrior within us all.
PG-13. LGBTQ+, mature language, sexual innuendo, loss and grief, relationships, teenage life, bullying, Dungeons and Dragons themes and characters.
Tilly Evans/ Tillius the Paladin – 15. A nerdy, tomboy and closeted lesbian in real life who is obsessed with Dungeons and Dragons, she is famous among the geek crowd at her school. In the world of D&D, she’s a level 20 Paladin, Healer of wounds and protector of lights; aka not to be messed with. She’s spunky, powerful, agile, and brings young energy and fresh spirit. She dies at the very start of the show. The character that shows up in the play is a creation of Agnes’s imagination.
Agnes Evans – 18. Tilly’s older sister. At first an average girl, of average height, of average weight, and average build. Has no knowledge of the DnD culture. By her junior year, she has transformed into “magnificent cheerleadery.” In her Senior year, she discovers Tilly’s D&D book and wants to play it.
Chuck – A dorky freshmen, outspoken but self-aware nerd who loves the “Grunge Rocker roadie” look, a D&D enthusiast, also goes by the name “DM Biggs”. He is employed at the local game store and is a Dungeon Master who knew Tilly during her life. He acts as the Dungeon Master for the game Agnes plays
Miles – 18, Agnes’ boyfriend, not at all into “nerd culture”. He is a football player, and very sweet. He tries very hard. He’s just your average square kinda guy who can come off as being very frat. He genuinely loves Agnes and is a caring guy. Eventually, he joins in the DnD game, playing alongside Agnes.
Lilith Morningstar/Lily – 16. Her DnD Character class: Demon Queen. Acts as her party’s muscle. Has probably been alive for eternity. Very hot and Tilly’s girlfriend. Also very sarcastic, serious and self-aware. Think Gamora from “Guardians of the Galaxy.” In the real world, Lily is an average, modest teenager who wears glasses.
Kaliope Darkwalker /Kelly – 15. Her DnD Character is a Dark Elf. Acts as the party’s master tracker, lock picker, magic-user, and all-around elven ass-kicker. She’s athletic, a waywatcher and navigator. Very analytical. She gives off earthy vibes. In real life, she has cerebral palsy and uses forearm crutches to help her. Ronnie is her older brother.
Orcus/Ronnie – 17. His DnD character is a red demon. Has probably been alive for eternity. Former Overlord of the Underworld and current couch potato. If there’s a lost soul, he’ll either have it or at least know where it is. He’s the comedic relief of the party. In the real world, Ronnie is a normal sloppy teenager, his sister is Kelly.
Vera/ The Beholder – 18. Agnes’s best friend and fellow cheerleader, but would rather be with the punk-rockers. She clearly is only a cheerleader because Agnes is one. In the DnD game, she becomes a ferocious single-eyeballed monster with sharp sharklike teeth.
Steve – 15. Character Class: Mage. Adventurer supreme. He is dorky both in D&D and the real world.
Farrah – A little forest faerie. Appears very young. She’s adorable, but she’s actually an angry force of nature in a small package. Must have some form of character voice.
Evil Gabbi – 15, Evil succubi cheerleader and a great dancer. Tilly’s vision of pure evil; the epitome of fake-nice preppy girl. She appears as normal a cheerleader that tormented Tilly as well as a succubi cheerleader in the D&D game.
Evil Tina – 15, Evil succubi cheerleader and a great dancer. Tilly’s vision of pure evil; the epitome of fake-nice preppy girl. She appears as normal a cheerleader that tormented Tilly as well as a succubi cheerleader in the D&D game.
Monsters, etc.--BugBear, Succubi Cheerleaders, Gelatinous cube, Tiamat
