Quark Theatre presents The NetherMarch 9, 8:00 pm-March 25, 10:00 pm
Quark brings Jennifer Haley’s dystopian scenario to the stage. The story: In a future that may be closer than we think, the Internet we know today has evolved into The Nether, a perfectly realistic virtual world where anything is possible. As society and planetary resources have continued to fray and diminish, people spend more and more of their lives in The Nether. When horrific crimes are committed there, a young female detective has to find the truth. But in a virtual world where people can change their avatars like a suit of clothes, what is a crime? Is real-world crime prevented by The Nether, or encouraged? A blend of science fiction, true crime drama and personal discovery, The Nether explores the nature of reality when the most important things in your life happen in an artificial world.
Come see the show that WKNO’s Kacky Walton described as “Black Mirror meets SVU”!
