"In 1648 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 respective 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 forever."

The cast for the production stars Omar Metwally (Humayun) and Arian Moayed (Babur). Directed by Amy Morton, it features scenic design by Timothy R. Mackabee, costume design by Bobby Frederick Tilley II, lighting design by David Weiner and original music and sound design by Rob Milburn and Michael Bodeen.

Guards at the Taj is produced by the Atlantic Theater Company.
