1659. Mughal India. The imperial court, a place of opulence and excess; music, drugs, eunuchs and harems. Two brothers, whose mother's death inspired the Taj Mahal, are heirs to this Muslim empire. Now they fight ferociously for succession.

Tanya Ronder's adaptation of Shahid Nadeem's Dara spans the prince's lives from cradle to grave. An intense domestic drama of global consequences - for India then and for our world now.
