She Kills Monsters: Virtual Realms
A play by Qui Nguyen 

Directed and Choreographed by Barrie Gelles
Scenic Design by Sydney Lynne Thomas
Properties Design by Kerry Jones
Costume Design by Maria Hong
Makeup Design by Jen Kretchmer
Lighting Design by Ben Tusher
Original Music and Sound Design by Dana Kaufman 

In this high-octane dramatic comedy laden with homicidal fairies, nasty ogres, and 90s pop culture, acclaimed playwright Qui Nguyen offers a heart-pounding homage to the geek and warrior within us all. 

This play contains mild adult themes and the brief use of strobe lighting. 

“Broaching the ever-important topics of gender identity, sexuality, and disability, this action-packed dramedy not only entertains, but provokes thought about the feelings and struggles of marginalized communities, and the strength that comes from the bonds of friendship.”  - Alexandra Stone, Dramaturg

Very good performance by all of the actors

I watched the play for class but ended up getting really invested in the characters and story. Even though it was performed on Zoom it did not stop the actors and crew from putting on a great play.
