Directed by Anne Kaufman, the Off-Broadway production will run Feb. 4-March 15 at the Lucille Lortel Theatre. Opening night is set for Feb. 24.

Rosenfield and Caruso join the previously announced Wever ("Nurse Jackie"), Tony nominee Peter Friedman (Ragtime, Twelve Angry Men) and Tony Award winner Frank Wood (Side Man, Clybourne Park).

Here's how the play is billed, "The Nether, winner of the Susan Smith Blackburn Prize, is a haunting thriller that will make you question when the fantastic becomes too real. There is a new immersive realm for the senses online, a virtual playground where those who plug in are coaxed into acting out their darkest fantasies – with no consequences in the “real” world. Or so it seems…until a young female detective begins an investigation to determine if there is a point at which thought or intention may actually constitute a crime within - and outside of - this new frontier."

Tickets are now on sale. Visit mcctheater.org. The Lucille Lortel Theatre is located at 121 Christopher Street.
