Akhnaton

by: Agatha Christie

Overview

An enlightened pharaoh falls foul of his conservative court when he attempts to unite the polytheist Egyptians under one god – a course of action that forces factions of both the army and priesthood to turn against him. Undeterred, Akhnaton’s vision of a kingdom where people dwell in peace, truth, love and beauty will ultimately destroy him and all those he holds dear. 

Regarded as one of her most extraordinary plays, this epic historical drama is unlike anything you have read of Christie’s before.
