The Nether (West End)
Following a sold-out run at the Royal Court Theatre, Jennifer Haley’s critically-acclaimed, multi-award-winning play transfers to London’s Duke of York’s Theatre for a limited 12-week run.
The Nether offers complete freedom – a new virtual wonderland providing total sensory immersion. Just log in, choose an identity and indulge your every desire.
An intricate crime drama and a haunting thriller set in the year 2050, The Nether follows an investigation into the complicated, disturbing morality of identity in the digital world, and explores the consequences of making dreams a reality.
Directed by Headlong Artistic Director Jeremy Herrin (Wolf Hall / Bring Up The Bodies, This House), this is an ‘exhilaratingly daring‘ (Financial Times) production. Sonia Friedman Productions, Headlong and the Royal Court are known for bringing some of the UK’s best new plays in recent years to the West End, including Jerusalem, Chimerica, 1984, Posh, Constellations and ENRON.
