In 1648, two men stand guard at the gates of the Taj Mahal on the eve of its opening but they are not allowed to take a peek. Babur, the imaginative and the inventive guard, is itching to do it, while the other guard, Humayun, a sternly loyal second-generation civil servant, wants to prevent him from doing so. The play is about what happens to their heartbreakingly funny and relatable friendship, as it is tested under extreme circumstances. While playing on the themes of power, beauty, friendship, and loss, this Hindi-Urdu adaptation of the Obie Award-winning play by the Pulitzer prize-nominated American writer Rajiv Joseph, is about contrasting the simple desires of two common people against the power that controls them, and revealing the price they need to pay for fulfilling these desires.
