Comments from John Fletcher[]

Play based on the life of the great platonist, aesthete, psychopath, botanist, soldier of fortune and diarist Babur (descendant of Genghis Khan and Tamburlaine) who conquered Afghanistan and India and founded the Moghul Empire...starred Saaed Jaffrey, the greatest actor I've ever had in any of my plays.

Babur is the greatest Renaissance Prince ever. He made Lorenzo the Magnificent look like a pudding.
