Toronto Premiere of The Nether by Jennifer Haley A co-production between Coal Mine Theatre and Studio 180 Theatre
Written by Susan Smith Blackburn Prize-Winner Jennifer Haley and directed by Coal Mine alum Peter Pasyk (Poison, Killer Joe), The Nether will open Coal Mine's #SeasonFive and Studio 180 Theatre's sixteenth season.
'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 one's fantasies. 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
