Competition: Win tickets to Guards at the Taj at the Bush Theatre

Win two tickets to see Guards at the Taj at the Bush Theatre.

Guards at the Taj | Until 20 May | Bush Theatre

Jamie Lloyd directs the European premiere of this darkly funny play by Pulitzer Prize finalist Rajiv Joseph.

Humayun and Babur are best friends and Imperial Guards for the mighty Emperor Shah Jahan. Their job is simple – to stand guard as the final touches are put to Taj Mahal, the most beautiful monument ever created. There’s one catch: they’re not allowed to look at it. And they must do whatever the Emperor commands…

“If we hadn’t done our jobs tonight, we’d be hanging by our necks in the royal courtyard getting our eyes pecked out by the royal crows. So excuse me if I don’t wallow in some misbegotten guilt all night. Was it fucked up? Yes, it was. But I don’t have to feel terrible about it.”

Guards at the Taj is the recipient of the Obie Award for Best New American Play and the Lucille Lortel Award for Outstanding Play (2016).
