She Kills Monsters at The Leeward Theatre!

The Leeward Theatre is proud to announce the next production of our 43rd Season: She Kills Monsters by Qui Nguyen. Leeward faculty member and award winning local director Betty Burdick will be directing the production in the new Leeward Theatre Alternate Space (AM-101).  Nicholas Logue of Windward Community College will be choreographing the many fights.

A comedic romp into the world of fantasy role-playing games, She Kills Monsters 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 playwright Qui Nguyen offers a heart-pounding homage to the geek and warrior within us all.

She Kills Monsters is presented by special arrangement with SAMUEL FRENCH, INC.

Seating is limited so get your tickets early!

Leeward CC Professor Betty Burdick will be directing the students in the production. She has directed past shows from the Leeward Theater such as Alice in Wonderland, Twelfth Night, Titus Andronicus, Clockwork, A Dark and Stormy Knight, Tartuffe, and most recently, The Comedy of Errors. Some of the students and alumni in the production have also starred in Burdick’s past shows or have taken theater classes with her.

The performances will take place on November 2, 3, 4, 9, 10, 11, 17, 18 at 8pm. November 19 at 4pm. Due to renovations currently being done to the Leeward Theater, every showing will take place in the back-up theater at AM-101.
