Coal Mine Theatre and Studio 180 Theatre
Playwright(s): Jennifer Haley
'The Nether' is a virtual world. Just log in, choose an identity and indulge your every whim - and darkest desires. But when a young detective uncovers a disturbing brand of entertainment, she triggers a dark battle over technology and human desire. THE NETHER is both serpentine crime drama and haunting sci-fi thriller that explores the consequences of living out our private dreams. A daring, shocking look at what is real. And what is legal.
As a parable for where we’re headed on that big old highway in the digital sky, The Nether exerts a viselike grip…
- The New York Times
The ominous atmosphere is created by suggestion rather than in-yer-face horrors … haunting and highly original modern fairy-tale.
