Guards at the Taj

Guards at the Taj

October 6 - November 15, 2015
Audrey Skirball Kenis Theater

Written by Rajiv Joseph
Directed by Giovanna Sardelli
Featuring Raffi Barsoumian and Ramiz Monsef
West Coast Premiere

Critics' Pick! "A feat! Most impressive of all perhaps is Joseph's ability to balance the increasingly creepy slapstick with the hand-clasping humanity of two characters who, like it or not, are bonded as brothers." - Los Angeles Times

"A stunning play about the rumors of what befell the builders of the Taj Mahal ... funny, haunting and deeply insightful." - LA Weekly

"A must-experience!" - Daily News

Ambition, philosophy and absurdity spill-over in Rajiv Joseph’s violently beautiful new play about two lowly guards handed the grueling task of protecting the Taj Mahal. Wildly comic and astoundingly tragic, the journey of these two friends asks if perfection comes at too great a cost.
