“The Why,” a play by Victor Kaufold that examines the absurdity and influence of violence in the media, will stage at the John W. Bardo Fine and Performing Arts Center on the campus of Western Carolina University at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, March 21, through Friday, March 23, and 3 p.m. Saturday, March 24.

One part modern satire, one part investigation into violence and its portrayal by the media, “The Why” is a 90-minute tragicomedy where the central story concerns an American teenager guilty of murdering three of his classmates. The play originally opened at the Blank Theatre in Los Angeles in 2000 to critical acclaim. D.V. Caitlyn, WCU associate professor of theater, will direct. “The Why” is the final production of the University Theatre’s 2011-12 Mainstage season.
