About The Nether

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.

This ‘exhilaratingly daring’ (Financial Times) production is directed by Headlong Artistic Director Jeremy Herrin (Wolf Hall  / Bring Up The BodiesThis House) and brought to the West End by Sonia Friedman Productions, Headlong and the Royal Court. In recent years, these producers have presented some of the UK’s best new plays in the West End including hit productions Jerusalem, Chimerica, 1984, Posh, Constellations and ENRON.
