House of Joy, playing at Cal Shakes, takes places around 17th century Delhi where an imperial bodyguard risks her life to fight for what’s right, and goes against everything she’s been raised to believe. The show is a blend of comedy, action, adventure and  romance. House of Joy runs at Cal Shakes until Sept. 1st.
