at an egyptian dig in the late 1980s, Dr. alexandra Philips, an archeologist on her first excavation since recovering from a nervous breakdown, uncovers a heretofore unknown burial chamber. as she probes the mystery of the tomb, the imprisoned spirit of akhnaton, the forgotten husband of Queen Nefertiti and the father of King Tut-ankh-amun, appears to her and shares his story of a time when he held the world in his hands, before it was all cruelly ripped away. It's a feeling Alex herself remembers, as she is continually second-guessed about her abilities to still do her job. Feeling an unexpected kinship with this lost soul, yet craving a return to academic heights, Alex is torn when akhnaton's longing to be at peace challenges her duty to science and her own career. But can alex, like akhnaton, risk all to rise a phoenix from the ashes of her life and be true to her own conscience above all else? First produced in 1989, ankhst tells the story of a man who believed in the existence of only one god and who tried to teach his people new ways of understanding long before they were ready - an idea which put him squarely in conflict with the priests of egypt, who were determined not to lose the power they tightly held. Told in a style which combines blank verse, modern-day prose, incidental music and Near-eastern dancing.
