February 24, 2018 2 p.m. Black Box Theatre, SOU Theater Building
405 S Mountain Ave, Ashland OR 97520
The Oregon Center for the Arts will present the play She Kills Monsters by Qui Nguyen in the Black Box theatre of the newly remodeled theatre building at SOU (February 15-17 and 22-25, 2018).
Following the 2:00 p.m. matinee performance on February 24, a panel of theatre faculty and student actors, designers, and technicians will participate in a post-performance discussion of the play.
The play recounts the story of a young woman who stumbles upon her dead sister’s Dungeons & Dragons notebook and finds herself improbably transported into a live-action version of the D & D world, where she must do battle with all manner of frightful monsters–some of her own making. Through her immersion in this high-octane fantasy, she must confront the truth of her sister’s life, as well as her own. The play asks us to consider the many ways we find truth in fiction.
