The Nether by Jennifer Haley
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
While nothing graphic whatsoever happens onstage, THE NETHER has violent and sexually suggestive content, including rape, murder, suicide and pedophelia, that may be deeply disturbing to some. Please be advised.
