William Penn Senior High School


This year’s William Penn Performing Arts Institute fall production is “She Kills Monsters” by Qui Nguyen. Performances are scheduled for 7 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 17 and Saturday, Nov. 18 in the William Penn Senior High School auditorium.

She Kills Monsters tells the story of high schooler Agnes Evans as she deals with the death of her younger sister, Tilly. When Agnes stumbles upon Tilly’s Dungeons & Dragons notebook, she finds herself catapulted into a journey of discovery and action-packed adventure in the imaginary world that was her sister’s refuge. This high-octane dramatic comedy is laden with homicidal fairies, nasty ogres, and ’90s pop culture as Agnes learns the truth about the sister she lost. Acclaimed playwright Qui Nguyen offers a heart-pounding homage to the warrior within us all.
