This year’s Fall Play, She Kills Monsters by young playwright Qui Nguyen, follows the story of Agnes Evans, whose younger sister Tilly has just died. As she gets pulled into a Dungeons and Dragons game that her deceased sister created, she encounters deadly fairies, devils, mean girls and even a Jello for of her boyfriend. The play has been described by Samuel French Publishers as a “comedic romp into the world of fantasy role-playing games.” In the course of the performance, Agnes learns about her sister as she follows a journey of self-discovery in an imaginative world full of adventure.
“The goal this year was to outdo ourselves and I think that by the end we will succeed in that,” said cast member Felicity Keyzer-Pollard ‘21. “I can honestly say that it is going to be the best show we have done while I have been at St. Marks. There are so many amazing moments in the show that make me so proud of what we have put together. It is such an amazing group of people working on the Cast and Crew this year. I am so proud of all the work they have done.”
June Hyunoo Seong ‘19 commented that “[the] play is incredibly intersectional and provides thoughtful commentary on identity issues. This play will relate to everyone.”
