PURE Theatre, 134 Cannon Street, Charleston, SC
Saturday, June 8, 2019, 4 – 5pm

“A fast-paced tragicomedy; one part modern satire, one part honest investigation, The Why follows Robert, an American teenager guilty of killing 3 of his classmates in a school shooting. Spliced among the dramatic exchanges between Robert and his assigned social worker, a parade of fantastical stereotypes storms in and out, creating a dichotomy between moments of hilarity and sorrow. Written in 2003, The Why is alarmingly relevant today, cleverly shinning a theatrical light on just how far we have not come in stopping one of the most horrific occurrences in modern America. PURE Theatre’s Apprentice Company is a collective of artists under the mentorship of PURE Theatre’s established Core Ensemble.”
