Bradley University Theatre Blends Real and Fantasy Worlds With "She Kills Monsters"

This week, we're talking with Scott Kanoff, about Bradley University Theatre's production of "She Kills Monsters." The play tells the story of a young woman who delves into the world of the Dungeons & Dragons game in an attempt to better understand her late sister.

Kanoff says the production was an enormous undertaking for the department. The script calls for multiple stage fights, in different styles. Since the play unfolds in both the real world and the fantasty world of the game, the technical team was challenged to show the transitions between the two. He notes that the rehearsal period included weekly stage practice, and began with three nights of role-playing games for the actors.

"She Kills Monsters" is now running at the Hartmann Center Theatre on the Bradley University campus. Performances continue through Sunday, November 18th.
