In Search of.. The Mummy's Curse

A play was written many years ago in memory of a long dead Egyptian king. Two young women were chosen to play the leading roles. The play was the whim of an American writer who thought to poke fun at ancient Egyptian superstition. legend had it the priests of Egypt cursed their dead king to wander aimlessly through eternity. They did this by forbidding anyone to speak his name. That night both women had eerie dreams about the cursed king, Akhenaten, one that she was struck across the face, in the morning, she was nearly blind. Coincidence? Or was there another force involved? A curse working its evil way after nearly 4,000 years? The priests of Egypt had enormous power. Not even the Pharaoh was immune from their vengeance...
