Before the Throne

In this extraodinary drama, Naguib Mahfouz reveals his love for Egypt s history. In Before The Throne, he summons sixty of Egypt s former rulers, from the ancient to the modern, to an afterlife court. The legacy of both the familiar and obscure are honoured. Full of Mahfouz's deep insight and rich, textured writing, this work skillfully follows 5,000 years of Egypt s history, arriving at the present day with surprising and controversial conclusions.

Naguib Mahfouz is the author of nearly forty novel-length works, hundreds of short stories and numerous screenplays. He was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1988.
