Guards at the Taj

At the multi award winning Theatre by the Lake, probably the most beautifully located theatre in Britain. On the shores of Derwentwater lake and just a short stroll back to Keswick town centre.

As dawn breaks on the final day of construction of the Taj Mahal, two hapless Imperial Guards must once again resist the urge to look at the most beautiful monument the world has ever seen – by order of the Emperor.
As first light hits the pure white domes, this proves harder than it sounds and friends Humayun and Babur are about to discover that beauty comes at a terrible price.
Brutal, audacious and wickedly funny, this is an award-winning tale about beauty, the powerful and the powerless.
