Production images have been released today for the European premiere of Guards at the Taj, written by Pulitzer Prize finalist Rajiv Josephand directed by Jamie Lloyd. Danny Ashok plays the role of Humayun and Darren Kuppan plays Babur. Check out the photos below!

This darkly comic play runs at the newly revitalised Bush Theatre, following its major £4.3m capital project. Guards at the Taj takes an enduring legend about the Taj Mahal and prompts audiences to explore questions about art, privilege and duty.

It's 1648. Agra, India. Imperial guards Humayun and Babur keep watch as the final touches are put to the mighty Taj Mahal behind them. The emperor has decreed that no one, except the masons, labourers and slaves who exist within those walls, shall turn to look at the building until it is complete.

Guards at the Taj is written by Rajiv Joseph, directed by Jamie Lloyd and designed by Soutra Gilmour. Lighting design is by Richard Howell with sound design and music composed by George Dennis. Fight direction is by Kate Waters.
