The Public Theater has announced that Tony-winner Denis O'Hare, Rachel Maddow, and Elizabeth Marvel will participate in the next Public Forum Drama Club: Only We Who Guard the Mystery Shall Be Unhappy. The one-night reading of the play by Tony Kushner will take place on November 3 at Joe's Pub.

In Only We Who Guard the Mystery Shall Be Unhappy, First Lady Laura Bush reads a passage from Dostoyevsky to Iraqi children who were killed in American air strikes. After the reading, Kushner and the cast will discuss the morality of U.S. foreign policy and the extent to which we share responsibility for our leaders' actions.

Public Forum is a series of conversations and performances that feature leading voices in politics, media, and the arts. It is curated by Jeremy McCarter.
