The Nether

  • The Nether Official Theatre Duke of Yorks
Following a sold out run at the Royal Court Theatre, The Nether makes a triumphant West End transfer to the Duke of York’s Theatre.

Jennifer Haley’s The Nether is set in a live interactive virtual world called The Nether* Realm in which users can choose whatever identity they wish as well as allowing them the ability to indulge their darkest desires.

As a young detective delves further into The Nether she stumbles upon some disturbingly illicit goings on which lead the audience to question how lawful behaving a certain way in an alternate reality can really be.

Touching on themes of murder, rape and paedophilia, The Nether is a truly alarming imagination of the modernising world. Set in the year 2050, the show depicts life in a not so distant future as we rely more and more on our online selves.

The creative team include Headlong’s Jeremy Herrin as director and Es Devlin as designer.

*Those who wish to interact with The Nether may use the twitter hashtag #TheNether which allows participants to alter the environment of the virtual world.
