This is an epic Drama written in free verse on the great non-fiction story of the "heretic Pharaoh" Akhenaten who ruled Egypt during the Armana period in 1379-1362 B.C.E. I was inspired to adapt the story into western drama from my knowledge in history and humanity courses at California State University Sacramento. The story of Akhenaten's revolution stimulated my curiosity when l read about him as the famous heretic Pharaoh. Akhenaten has demonstrated the humanity side of life during the Armana period. This great Pharaoh is like many of us who have once changed their concept of God because of some reasons. Akhenaten made history in Ancient Egypt as he closed up all other shrines except the shrine of Aton Ra, the Living Sun God. After his death the closed shrines were opened by his successor Pharaoh Tutankhamen.

Experience one of the best epic play ever written as Festus Ogunbitan brings to you an exciting African history in Epic drama. Pharaoh Akhenaten¿s play tells how all the Gods of Egyptian pantheon was summed up into only one God of Aton Ra. Witness how the priests of the shrines challenged Pharaoh in a big argument to secure the reopening of the closed shrines. The play is presented in free verse style that competes with Shakespearian standard.
