She Kills Monsters is a drama-comedy play by Qui Nguyen that debuted in 2011. It tells the story of Agnes Evans, an average woman who loses her parents and little sister Tilly in a car accident. Having been very distant from her sister while she was alive, Agnes embarks in an adventure to get to know her sister better by playing a Dungeons & Dragons module that Tilly had written, and discovers things she'd never imagined. The plot takes place in reality and in the imaginary game world; in the game world Agnes learns about Tilly's exploration with her sexuality and how she struggled with her sexuality in reality.

This show meets our Jubilee Commitment criteria will exploring relevant topics to young adults in the world of romantic and interpersonal relationships. We find it is especially timely as our culture and society struggles with relating and identifying with viewpoints different from our own during a time of increased polarization when the “other” is scarier than ever.
The JUBILEE is a yearlong, nationwide theatre festival featuring work generated by those who have traditionally been excluded–including but not limited to artists of color, Native American and Indigenous and First Nations artists, women, non-binary and gender non-conforming artists, LGBTQIA2+ artists, Deaf artists, and artists with disabilities. For more information, please visit the Jubilee website at https://jointhejubilee.org/about/.
The Department of Theatre and Dance at Tulane is inspired by this act and committed to making its stages and content more inclusive and reflective of the diverse country and state we live in. We have committed to the Jubilee for the upcoming season.
