The Nether

September 30, 2016 - October 22, 2016

Imago Theatre - 17 SE 8th Ave, Portland, OR 97214

The Nether is:

  1. the next generation of the Internet
  2. an expansive world of virtual realities and lifelike sensation
  3. a frontier of endless exploration with no laws and limitless possibilities
  4. your worst nightmare
  5. all of the above

Morris has been assigned to investigate rumors of bizarre and terrifying behavior in The Nether, an online virtual realm where technology can realistically simulate all five of our senses. As her investigation takes her deeper and deeper into this mysterious world, she’s forced to face truths about herself that she never knew existed. The Nether is a chilling look into an inevitable future, one that asks: can morality and laws be enforced in a world that doesn’t actually exist.
