Brotherhood, brutality, beauty, and blood. Lots and lots of blood.
At dawn, the glorious Taj Mahal will be unveiled for the first time. But for two hapless guards, sunrise will trigger a ghoulishly funny existential crisis that will shake their faith in God, the empire, and each other. Guards at the Taj is a dark comedy about two average men swept up by the beauty, carnage, and injustice surrounding one of the most famous wonders of the world.
“A human comedy that darkens and grows like a black hole.” (Washington Post)
“Strikingly original drama” (Variety)
