THEATER | 'She Kills Monsters' 

If you pay attention, you can learn a lot about yourself and other people while playing a role-playing tabletop game like Dungeons & Dragons. You can see how decisions are made in the moment, get a glimpse at the character other people want to project into the world, and grow a little closer with friends while working together to complete a mission. In the dramatic comedy "She Kills Monsters," playwright Qui Nguyen explores those ideas — along with female and LGBTQ representation in gaming — in a heartfelt, fanciful way. Agnes, a high school teacher, finds a detailed Dungeons & Dragons playbook created by her younger sister, Tilly, who died in a car crash. To better understand her sister, Agnes takes on Tilly's gaming persona and dives into D&D — with swordfights, monsters, and a little bit of gore on stage.

Directed by Geva Directing Fellow Alex Keegan, the College at Brockport's Department of Theatre and Music Studies will stage "She Kills Monsters" on Friday, December 1, through Saturday, December 9. Tower Fine Arts Center, 180 Holley Street, Brockport. 7:30 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays; 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, December 7; and 2 p.m. on Sunday, December 3. $17 general admission; $12 seniors, alumni, faculty, and staff; $9 students. 395-2787;
