I wanted to share with you all a press release for an upcoming play called The Nether. The play is written by Jennifer Haley and wonderfully enough it won her the 2012 Susan Smith Blackburn prize, which is an award presented to an outstanding women playwright. Jennifer Haley is also known for her graphic novel play FROGGY
This play is set in the realm of the internet in which you login and pick your new identity and just do as you will (pretty much what we all do on the internet currently). However everything changes when a detective stumbles upon the dark side of this wonderful E-Realm.
This play is currently playing at the:
Kirk Douglas Theatre
Located in: Downtown Culver City
9820 Washington Blvd.
Culver City, CA 90232
If you are interested in this play and are able to make it, check it out.

The Nether at the Kirk Douglas Theatre
March 19 – April 14, 2013
A World Premiere!
Written by Jennifer Haley

Escape your reality. Face your fantasy.
A new virtual wonderland provides total sensory immersion. Just log in, choose any identity, vanish into a dizzying array of online realms and indulge your every whim. The Nether promises complete freedom.
But when a young detective uncovers a disturbing brand of entertainment that blurs the boundaries between personal liberty and moral chaos, she triggers a dark battle over technology and human desire.
WARNING: This play contains adult content, language and sexuality and is recommended for ages 16+.
