since its Off-Off-Broadway debut at the Flea Theatre in 2011, SHE KILLS MONSTERS has fast become a cult favorite with performances sweeping across the country, winning the AATE Distinguished Play Award in 2013.  author Qui Nguyen is an Arkansas-born Vietnamese-American who has made a name for himself as the co-founder of NYC's Vampire Cowboys Theatre presenting intensely fight-orientd plays that bring together pop culture themes with burning social issues...

SHE KILLS MONSTERS takes audiences to a fantasy realm rich with sword-wielding she-warriors, bug-eyed beasts, and dorky demons and finds some fresh ways to take on real world monsters like bullying, peer pressure, gender stereotypes, and even homophobia

dripping with smart-ass quips and nerd-tastic nuances, this odd-ball odyssey is a hip, clever, and straight up awesome reminder that free spirits and fierce imaginations can be the mightiest weapons of all

our rendition of this soon-to-be subversive classic features wild original puppet monsters by Michele Costa & Gail Argetsinger with kick-ass fight choreography by Jessica Stuber*.  directed by Drew McCabe*, the cast features Emily Yancey and Jamie Nablo* with Ryan Kaminski, Rick Lattimer*, David Moran, Stefanie Warnick, Sofia Matlasz, Mara Westerling-Morris, Jaimee Harmon, and Bekki Sliwa
