Agnes never shared her geeky younger sister Tilly's love for Dungeons and Dragons, but after tragedy strikes, Agnes sets off on a quest to understand her dorky, weirdo sibling and the fantasy world she loved. Qui Nguyen's fantastical play She Kills Monsters takes us on the journey of a colorful group of misfits as they battle demons, dragons, prejudice, grief, and win acceptance.

Visiting Jessika Malone at Nashville Children’s Theatre to talk about Sideshow @ Actors Bridge’s  latest show is a little like being guided through Wonderland by Alice. The young actress, director and company front-woman sparkles with enthusiasm for She Kills Monsters , which opens today.

Qui Nguyen’s play tells the tale of Agnes Evans, who is leaving her hometown after the death of her younger sister, Tilly. Agnes decides to stay a while when she finds her sister’s Dungeons and Dragons journal, and journeys into a world of Tilly’s creation. The New York Times calls She Kills Monsters “…deceptively breezy and rather ingenious. The whole enterprise is kind of dopey and kind of invigorating and kind of remarkable. It will slash and shape-shift its way into your heart.”

After exploring the wonders of the set shop and journeying through the fascinating alley arrangement that provides the play’s setting, Malone leads me to the green room, where we focus on the more cerebral regions of the play:

PHOENIX, Arizona -- A 69-year-old woman working as a volunteer at a pet boarding facility died Wednesday after she was attacked by a dog.

The unidentified woman was working at Canine Country Club and Feline Inn as part of a rescue group called Akita Advocates, the Arizona Republic reports .

"She was here potentially to socialize the animal to prepare it for adoption when the attack took place,'' Jose Santiago, a spokesman for Maricopa County Animal Care and Control, tells the Republic. "No one actually witnessed the attack.''

Halloween is on Saturday. We really like Halloween. 1 And so we are going to use the upcoming holiday as an excuse to talk about horror-movie monsters for the next 4,500 words. But the whole point of this isn’t just to meander around the graveyard, it’s to figure out who the greatest horror-movie monster is. There are some rules in place to make this a more feasible task:

Rule 2: The monster can’t be a real animal . If it’s a real animal you can find in a zoo, it’s eliminated from consideration. Size doesn’t matter, either; could be 10 feet tall, could be 100 feet tall, makes no difference. That means there’s no Jaws, there’s no Lake Placid crocodile, there are no razorback pigs from Razorback , no animals like that.

Rule 3: The monster can’t be a benevolent monster . We’re only talking about monsters who are out for blood and death and gore. Benevolent monsters are boring and dumb and why are you even a monster if you’re not trying to tear someone’s arms from their body. FOH, Harry from Harry and the Hendersons .
