The Nether

An eye in front of an autumn scene. Text reads:

Would you like to be:
Mature and spirited
Which season would you like it to be:
You kick the crisp leaves into the air and watch them land around you.

By Jennifer Haley. Directed by Jeremy Herrin

A Headlong and Royal Court co-production, presented in the West End by Sonia Friedman Productions, Scott M. Delman and Tulchin Bartner Productions


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.

Age Guidance: 16+

Winner of the 2015 Olivier Award for Best Design.
