Exuberantly comic, shockingly brutal and deeply tragic, Rajiv Joseph's Guards at the Taj was nominated for a Pulitzer Prize for its portrayal of two good-natured guys operating under the assertion that successfully guarding the Taj Mahal will get them promoted to guarding the harem. Abundant with philosophical questions, the play asks us to ponder the ways in which we define beauty, perfection and, as suggested by The New York Times, "the human price paid throughout history for the caprices of the mighty." Hailed as "one of the most provocatively talented American playwrights" by the Los Angeles Times, Joseph's Guards at the Taj comes to Washington, D.C. courtesy of Woolly Mammoth Theatre Company.
