Tony Kushner, genius playwright and all-around gadfly, has a work in progress entitled "Only We Who Guard the Mystery Shall Be Unhappy" -- that link is an excerpt from the first scene, from The Nation. It involves Laura Bush reading "The Brothers Karamazov" to a group of dead Iraqi children in their pajamas. I'll say this, the man has conviction. There's a reading of it tonight at the A.R.T. in Cambridge...unless John Ashcroft finds out about it, presumably.
