“She Kills Monsters” by Qui Ngyuen first debuted as a quirky Off-Broadway hit, and in recent years has become a wildly popular choice for high school and college theater troupes. It’s the story of high school senior Agnes Evans one year after the death of her younger sister, Tilly. When Agnes finds Tilly’s Dungeons & Dragons notebook, she stumbles into a journey of discovery and action-packed adventure in the imaginary world that was Tilly’s refuge.
In Richard Dressler’s “Club Mojito”, a tight-knit group of college seniors gather on the roof of their apartment house on the night before graduation. Loyalties are tested, romances challenged, and the group reconfigures itself in surprising ways as each one has to face the bittersweet end of one era and the start of the next.Note for families:
Both of these plays can be appropriately labeled as PG-13. In tone, they are both comedic and dramatic, with uplifting and hopeful endings. As stories about contemporary young people working out their identities and their relationships, they feature characters discussing grief, romance, betrayal, and sexual identity. “She Kills Monsters” features some slapstick violence with an occasional macabre flair. “Club Mojito” depicts some drinking but no drunkenness, though one character accuses another having had too much during a brief seduction attempt. Both shows have occasional instances of mild profanity.
