Geek culture has grown by leaps and bounds and it’s about time the Dungeons & Dragons dorks met the theatre nerds. The opening night for The Brelby Theatre Company’s production of the dragon-slaying off-Broadway hit She Kills Monsters is Friday, July 11.
Spawned from the mind of chief geek and co-founder of the Vampire Cowboys Theatre Company, Qui Nguyen, the 2011 play sees Agnes Evans return home after her parents and younger sister Tilly are killed in a car accident. Lamenting her barely-there relationship with her sister, she stumbles upon Tilly’s D&D module. Partaking in the role-playing game left behind by her sister, Agnes accesses Tilly’s world of imagination, angst, and pop culture influences, putting exploration of the past at odds with moving forward.
She Kills Monsters is at The Brelby Theatre Company, 6835 North 58th Avenue in Glendale, through Saturday, July 26. The opening night performance starts at 7:30pm and tickets are $30. For more information and additional dates and times, including weekend matinee performances, visit www.brelby.com.
Thursdays-Saturdays, 7:30 p.m.; Saturdays, Sundays, 2 p.m. Starts: July 11. Continues through July 26, 2014
