“Imagine an episode of Law & Order: SVU written by a futurist fiction writer like Ray Bradbury” and you have Jennifer Haley’s gripping and critically acclaimed play The Nether. Winner of the 2012 Susan Smith Blackburn Prize, The Nether has been lauded with critical acclaim from The New York Times, Time Out London, The Huffington Post and Variety (to name a few), this searing new work is both serpentine crime drama and haunting sci-fi thriller that explores the consequences of living out our private dreams. A new virtual wonderland provides total sensory immersion. Just log in, choose an identity and indulge your every whim. But when a young detective uncovers a disturbing brand of entertainment, she triggers a dark battle over technology and human desire.
