ABOUT THE PLAY:
SHE KILLS MONSTERS is a fantasy/adventure play following, Agnes, a high school English teacher as she navigates the world of Dungeons and Dragons for the very first time. Weaving in and out of reality and fantasy, Agnes must confront a personal tragedy, a finicky boyfriend, and fight to save her sister’s soul from a shape-shifting monster. In battling creepy demons and blobs of very skilled Jell-O molds, Agnes discovers the importance of friendship in a world that is not so friendly. This comedic romp is loaded with stage combat, 90’s dance moves, and magic! So, embrace your inner “nerd”—grab your capes, wands, dance skills, and let’s play Dungeons and Dragons!
PREPARE: one contemporary, 90 second comedic monologue

AGNES EVANS: mid-20s, Tilly’s older sister, a high school teacher dealing with Tilly’s death, described as average and clueless to nerd culture. She eventually learns to embrace inner badass and lets her geek flag fly.
CHUCK: mid-20s, nerd with a grunge rock sensibility, runs a comic book store, grunge rocker roadie. As Dungeon Master he goes by "DM Biggs." Considers himself a ladies man.
MILES: mid-20s, Agnes’ boyfriend, average and occasionally confused. Has a temper. Agnes’ “long-term” boyfriend but hasn’t made the big leap. Also plays a mean gelatinous cube.
VERA: guidance counselor; Agnes’s friend at the high school. Foul mouthed and short tempered. She's not very good at her job.
LILITH: late teens; popular girl next door by day, heroic and sexy Demon Queen by night. Described as “the perfect combination of beauty and brawn.” Tilly’s in-game girlfriend.
KALIOPE: an athletic Dark Elf; sexy spell caster; described as “rocking lady hotness,” collected, older soul.
ORCUS: late teens; Overlord of the Underworld, a lazy demon that has given up defending his treasure in favor of watching TV and snacking on Easy Cheese.

FARRAH: faerie that lives in a forest; petite, evil, homicidal, kind of a jerk.
EVIL GABBI & EVIL TINA: evil bully succubi winged cheerleaders with fangs. When at school, the same, minus the wings. Dance experience a plus.
NARRATOR: She's not unlike Cate Blanchett in "The Lord of the Rings." In fact, very much like Cate Blanchett in Lord of the Rings.
