THE STORY: "Akhnaton" is a drama of ruthless logic and theatrical power. Set in 1350 BC, this intriguing classic delves into the legend of Pharaoh Akhnaton and his attempt to convince a nation to abandon their old `pagan' god Amon and to turn to the worship of a new deity, the monotheistic sun god, Aton. Written in 1939, the play is based on Agatha Christie's research in Luxor and is inspired by the history of ancient Egypt. It deals in a complex way with a number of issues: the difference between superstition and reverence, the danger of rash iconoclasm, the value of the arts, the nature of love, the conflicts set up by loyalty, and the tragedy apparently inherent in the inevitability of change.
