The Anubis Gates on Stage

Loncon 3, the 72nd World Science Fiction Convention, is delighted to announce that it will present the world premiere of a stage adaptation of The Anubis Gates by Tim Powers at the ExCeL Exhibition Centre in London's Docklands this August.

The high-octane adaptation of the Philip K Dick Award-winning novel is to be performed by Current Theatrics, a theatre company based in Las Vegas and New York. The play features ancient Egyptian wizards, modern American magnates, holes in the river of time, Horrabin the Clown's puppet show, werewolf-like creatures, cheeky urchins, and California literature professors, not to mention famous Romantic poets Lord Byron, Samuel Taylor Coleridge, and William Ashbless. It is set mainly in London in 1810 but spans 200 years of time jumping.

The Las Vegas-based cast have been in rehearsal since Tim Powers approved the project in December 2013. The six-member cast comprises Erik Amblad, JJ Gatesman, Brandon Oliver Jones, Johnny Miles, Ariana Helaine, and Geo Nikols, all of whom are playing several roles—a task made easier by the novel's story line, which involves body switching.
