Ancient Egypt. Sand (and more sand), heat, palm trees, temples, a boy king and some very clever Egyptians. The boy king's dearest wish is to let the whole world see how clever his people are, but alas, he dies before his nineteenth birthday and is laid in his tomb. However, at the end of the play, his dearest wish comes true as the whole world finally is able to see the wonders of Egypt as discovered by Howard Carter. Great support for work on the Egyptians.
