The non-profit Sandra Feinstein-Gamm Theatre creates the finest of live theater, engaging the audience intensely in current and recurrent issues of consequence.
Log in. Choose an identity. Live out your private dreams. This is life in the Nether—a lush, virtual wonderland offering total sensory immersion, free of judgment and, seemingly, consequence. But when a real-world cop discovers a disturbing form of entertainment in “The Hideaway” realm, she triggers a virtual investigation with gasp-worthy revelations and an unimagined result. Part fairy tale, part sci-fi thriller, The Nether is a taut, haunting and highly original play for our times.
The Nether is recommended for mature audiences.
“Deeply disturbing and provocative.” –The Independent, UK
“As a parable for where we’re headed on that big old highway in the digital sky, The Nether exerts a viselike grip, while taking you down avenues of thought you probably haven’t traveled yet.” –The New York Times
