Brighid Fleming, Adam Haas Hunter, Robert Joy, Dakin Matthews and Jeanne Syquia star in Jennifer Haley's Susan Smith Blackburn Prize-winning The Nether, getting its world premiere at Center Theatre Group's Kirk Douglas Theatre in Los Angeles.
According to CTG, "The Nether tantalizes with timely, thought-provoking questions about the growing sophistication of the digital realm, and the possibility that it will become a more fulfilling place to 'live' than the real world. Set in the not-too-distant future, where a detective investigates a highly interactive site in which taboo acts of secret desires are blurring the boundaries of right and wrong, and of virtual and real. She finds herself in a battle of wills with a charismatic suspect and wrestles with the question, is it a crime if the blood is just bits of computer code?"
