The Area Stage Company is proud to announce the South Florida Premiere of the award winning play THE NETHER by Jennifer Haley. THE NETHER will replace “The Landing” originally scheduled to open on the same dates. This is a professional production.
A new virtual wonderland provides total sensory immersion. Just log in, choose an identity and indulge your every whim. But when a young detective uncovers a disturbing brand of entertainment, she triggers a dark battle over technology and human desire.
Winner of the 2012 Susan Smith Blackburn Prize, THE NETHER is both serpentine crime drama and haunting sci-fi thriller that explores the consequences of living out our private dreams.
Directed by Carbonell Award winner John Rodaz. Set Designer Jodi Dellaventura. Costume Design by Carbonell Award winner Maria Banda-Rodaz. Sound Design by Giancarlo Rodaz. Stage Manager Kenya Anthony-Moore. With Daniel Capote, Samantha Dagnino, Peter W Galman, Gilbert Kaufmann and Isabel Van Natta.

“Deeply disturbing and provocative” – The Independent.
“The Nether is a gripping and deeply disconcerting look at the Internet and its role in one of the most disturbing issues of our times.” – Telegraph.
