The Girl Who Was the Sun

Play

A semi-finalist in the 2013 Eugene O’Neill Conference. A love story and a colorful re-imagined history of the Egyptian queen Nefertiti as a damaged war orphan with an injury that has given her a vision of a better world. This vision is of a new city, a revolution in art, and the abandonment of war as a policy of governing. She and Pharaoh Akhenaten, in the 17 years of their reign, also create the first monotheism in the western world – the worship of the sun.

The famous bust of Nefertiti was discovered in the tomb of King Tut early in the 20th century. The play’s conclusion seeks to answer the mystery of how Nefertiti’s likeness got to that tomb, and why.

A French edition of this play, translation by Peter Brown, will be available in 2015
