Set in the future, The Nether is an intricate sci-fi crime drama that tells the story of a new virtual digital world which provides total sensory immersion. Log in, choose an identity, and indulge your every whim, with no consequences in the “real” world. Or so it seems. A female detective begins an investigation to determine if there is a point at which thought or intention may actually constitute a crime within, and outside of, this new virtual realm. The Times calls The Nether “Mind-bending… like a hall of mirrors...” and The New York Times describes the play as “an episode of ‘Law & Order: SVU’ written by…Ray Bradbury.”
