"Set in 1350 BC, the legend of Akhnaton tells of the Pharoah's attempt to convince his nation to abandon their old 'pagan' god Amon and to turn to the worship of a new deity, the monotheistic sun god, Aton. Introduced to the legend by Howard Carter, discoverer of Tutankhamun's tomb, when she met him in Luxor in 1931, Agatha Christie became fascinated by both the story and the society in which it took place. Her painstaking researches led to this retelling of the story in the form of a highly readable and dramatic two-hour play. Akhnaton was written by Agatha Christie in 1937, when her interest in Egyptology from her travels with her archaeologist husband was at its height." --Amazon.com.
