After her totally-weird sister Tilly dies, oh-so-average Agnes doesn’t know what to make of the geekery she left behind. In an effort to understand the gulf between them, she embarks on a quest of Tilly’s own design, filled with fierce demons, elven supermodels, hostile fairies, evil cheerleaders, awkward high schoolers, and lots of monsters to kill. Will Agnes discover her inner badass, and make a connection with her lost sister, or will the bugbears get her first? She Kills Monsters is a comedic nerdgasm for the outcast in us all.

 

WHS Drama presents… SHE KILLS MONSTERS, by Qui Nguyen. Directed by David Scott in his return to Watsonville High School after spending the last seven years living and teaching in the south bay.
