Theatre Company performs “She Kills Monsters” for last time this weekend

Protagonist Agnes Evans (Gunder) watches from the sidelines as Lilith, played by junior Elyssabeth Pratt, defends Tilly Evans, played by junior Kaia Helmer, her game girlfriend, from the homicidal fairie Farrah, played by junior Avery Connor. In the play, Agnes (Gunder) enters a world her sister created in Dungeons and Dragons before her family died in a car crash. Because it's an alternate universe they play in, her sister remains alive and this allows her to better understand Tilly ( Helmer).
