About this show

With Only We Who Guard the Mystery Shall Be Unhappy, Tony Kushner has crafted a searing, timely play-in-progress that finds first lady Laura Bush reading Dostoevsky to the souls of dead Iraqi children. No stranger to challenging his audiences with political discourse, this charged election year has seen Kushner's newest work presented in such high-profile venues as New York's Roundabout Theatre Company and the American Repertory Theatre in Boston. This presentation by the Long Wharf Theatre marks the play's premiere before a Southern Connecticut audience, a mere eight days before the 2004 election.
