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.
