Set in November 1922, the story begins with Howard Carter's famous discovery of the tomb of Tutankhamun. Along with Lord Carnarvon and his daughter Lady Evelyn Herbert, Carter enters the tomb and is astounded by the treasures buried for over 3,000 years. Before long the visitors discover the story of this little known king through the writing on the walls of the tomb. These story-telling pictures are called hieroglyphs and in the play they come to life, teaching the audience all about Ancient Egypt. King Tutankhamun, who had rested in peace for thousands of years, is now awakened and with help needs to learn part of the "Book of the Dead" before he can join his father (The god Osiris) among the stars. In the meantime however, we learn all about hieroglyphs, Queen Hatshepsut, Egyptian society, the gods and pyramids.
