Gadfly Theatre Productions 2016-2017 Season!
Audition Notice for She Kills Monsters by Qui NGuyen
Gadfly Theatre Productions, a queer and feminist theatre company in Minneapolis is looking for artists of color for their October production of She Kills Monsters by Qui Nguyen. A comedic romp into the world of fantasy role-playing games, 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 stumbles into a journey of discovery and action-packed adventure in the imaginary world that was Tilly’s refuge. In this high-octane dramatic comedy laden with homicidal fairies, nasty ogres, and 90s pop culture, acclaimed young playwright Qui Nguyen offers a heart-pounding homage to the geek and warrior within us all.
Auditions are July 17th at the Fox Egg Gallery (3730 Chicago Avenue South, Minneapolis). We are interested in casting as many artists of color as possible, particularly the roles specified as well as those not specified.
