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.
