The Nether by Jennifer Haley
Directed by Jenny Hollingworth
January 17 – February 9, 2020 (Main Stage Series)
Set in the year 2025, the internet has become The Nether, a totally immersive virtual wonderland where anything goes. When a young detective uncovers a disturbing brand of entertainment, she triggers a dark battle over technology and human desire. Winner of the 2012 Susan Smith Blackburn Prize, The Nether is both serpentine crime drama and haunting sci-fi thriller that explores the consequences of living out our private dreams.
Please note that while it never shows anything graphic on stage, The Nether is for mature audiences only as it deals with pedophilia, sexual violence, suicide, and other very adult themes.
