In the immersive virtual world of the Nether, guests can log in, assume an identity and indulge their darkest desires. A serpentine crime drama and haunting sci-fi thriller, The Nether explores the consequences of living out one’s private dreams. Written by Susan Smith Blackburn Prize-Winner Jennifer Haley and directed by acclaimed Coal Mine alumni Peter Pasyk (Killer Joe, Poison).


“as smart as it is unsettling…The Nether exerts a viselike grip, while taking you down avenues of thought you probably haven’t traveled yet.”
The New York Times

“thought-provoking, deeply disconcerting…a piece that taps into one of the most urgent and disturbing issues of our times”

“Dark, disturbing and extraordinary…a cold, hard look at human behaviour.”
