This Remains will be an ensemble-devised performance in which we will dig into what makes a great ghost story, urban legend, or folktale, and create brand new ones in order to rethink and broaden the American canon of epic stories. Susan Stroupe will lead an ensemble of students in devising an original, site-specific show that will be performed in spaces outside the PAHB. Students will work collaboratively to devise all aspects of the show: performance, environmental design, and audience experience. The devising process will be similar to your Ensemble classes (but experience is not required), and students of ALL theatrical disciplines are highly encouraged to audition.

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. (Concord Theatricals).
