The Albin O. Kuhn Library Gallery presents North Pole Narratives: Photographs from the Wendorff Collection on Robert E. Peary, on display from February 3 through May 20.

She Kills Monsters

Proscenium Theatre UMBC Performing Arts and Humanities Building, 1000 Hilltop Circle, Baltimore

UMBC Theatre presents She Kills Monsters by Qui Nguyen, directed by Danielle Drakes. She Kills Monsters tells the story of Agnes Evans as she leaves her childhood home in Ohio following the death of her teenage sister, Tilly. When Agnes finds Tilly’s Dungeons & Dragons notebook, however, she finds herself catapulted into a journey of discovery and action-packed adventure in the imaginary world that was her sister’s refuge. In this high-octane dramatic comedy laden with homicidal fairies, nasty ogres, and ’90s pop culture, acclaimed playwright Qui Nguyen offers a heart-pounding homage to the geek and warrior within us all.
