SHE KILLS MONSTERS: more D&D in NYC contemporary art

From Playbill, “Dungeons & Dragons Inspires New Comedy She Kills Monsters at Flea; Cast Announced“:

The Flea Theater’s world-premiere production of She Kills Monsters, a comedy about the people who play fantasy games like Dungeons & Dragons, will feature a cast drawn from The Bats, the resident acting company of the lower Manhattan Off-Off-Broadway organization.

From the Flea Theater’s page for the show:

In SHE KILLS MONSTERS, Average Agnes is finally leaving her childhood home following the death of her totally weird sister, Tilly. When she stumbles upon Tilly’s Dungeons & Dragonsnotebook, however, Agnes embarks on an action-packed adventure to discover more about her sister than she previously cared to know. A high-octane comedy fraught with hostile fairies, randy ogres, and ‘90s pop culture, SHE KILLS MONSTERS is a heart-pounding homage to the badass (& geek) within us all.

The Flea will also host the Dungeons & Dragons-inspired art exhibit DOOMSLANGERS. Successfully presented at New York’s Allegra LaViola Gallery last winter, Artist Casey Jex Smith brings to life a Dungeons & Dragons adventure to save the mythical city of Dingershare from the evil Lord Ricaek. The exhibit can be viewed in the Flea’s lobby one-hour before the show.

From the NYC D&D Meetup board, “Our Meetup Has Been Invited…

to use the Flea Theater as a meetup location on November 5th at either 12 noon or 5pm. They are putting together a play called SHE KILLS MONSTERS – which there are 2 showings, one at 3PM and another at 7PM. I think they are under the impression that our games only last 2 hours now that I reflect on the email I received. But they have offered us a place to play, tickets to the show, and some refreshments.

I love this town! The show runs Nov. 4 – Dec. 24, for folks who can’t make the gaming session on the 5th.

    90’s pop culture?

    Actually, I have no idea how many 3e players there were/are out there… but isn’t that neither current nor retro enough? Maybe the 80s have a kind of vintage respectability now.

    Neat, thanks for reporting this. Hope something like that makes it to Ohio some day. We have tons of small theater companies.

    Hopefully you are going to give us a report on the play itself, once it is performed. Sadly, it is a bit far for me to travel.
