Out of strange circumstance comes exciting opportunity! While you cannot come to us for live theater, we’re bringing our theater to you — wherever in the world you might be! We’re delighted to reunite the original cast and creative team of the award-winning Guards at the Taj for an exclusive virtual remounting. 

“Riveting! Beautifully illustrated by Metwally and Moayed who bring quiet intensity, ferocity, and unbridled emotion! You won’t be able to look away from these two actors.”

More Info

In Pulitzer Prize finalist Rajiv Joseph’s bold and arresting play, it is 1648 in India. Two Imperial Guards watch from their post as the sun rises for the first time on the newly-completed Taj Mahal —  an event that shakes their worlds. When they are ordered to perform an unthinkable task, the aftermath forces them to question the concept of friendship, beauty and duty, and changes them.

Guards at the Taj had its world premiere during our 2014|2015 season. It won 3 Obie Awards and 4 Lortel Awards, including “Best New American Play” and “Outstanding Play!”
