She Kills Monsters: Virtual Realms

March 4 – March 7, 2021

By Qui Nguyen

Director, Alumnus Timothy Koch

She Kills Monsters: Virtual Realms”,  tells the story of Agnes Evans as she leaves her childhood home in Ohio following the death of her teenage sister, Tilly. When Agnes finds Tilly’s Dungeons & Dragons notebook, however, she stumbles into a journey of discovery and action-packed adventure in the imaginary world that was Tilly’s refuge. In this high-octane dramatic comedy laden with homicidal fairies, nasty ogres, and 90s pop culture, acclaimed young playwright Qui Nguyen offers a heart-pounding homage to the geek and warrior within us all.

The Liar

February 11-14, 2021

Director, Faculty Member Kevin Inouye

 

David Ives’ ‘translaptation’ of this 17th century comedy blends Elizabethan-style verse and modern language, relishing in its own rhyming word games, ridiculous plot contrivances, and occasional fourth-wall breakages.

A master who can’t help lying, a servant who can’t help speaking the truth, and a series of mistaken identities drive the story in this radio-play style reading.
