NOW PLAYING: 

THE NETHER
by Jennifer Haley

Sacramento Premiere
2012 Susan Smith Blackburn Prize Winner
2013 L.A. Ovation Award Winner for Best New Play
Directed by Kirk Blackinton
January 24 – February 25, 2018

The Nether is a virtual wonderland that provides total sensory immersion. Just log in, choose an identity and indulge your every desire. But when a young detective uncovers a disturbing brand of entertainment, she triggers an interrogation into the darkest corners of the imagination. Winner of the 2012 Susan Smith Blackburn Prize, and seven 2013 L.A. Ovation Awards including Best New Play, The Nether is both a serpentine crime drama and haunting sci-fi thriller that explores the consequences of living out our private dreams.

ADVISORY: INTENSE ADULT THEMES

“[☆☆☆ 1/2] Cap Stages’ Compelling ‘The Nether’ plays like a live-action episode of ‘Black Mirror’.” Sacramento Bee

“This play is supposed to make audiences feel uncomfortable, and it does. That’s what cautionary dystopias are designed to do, and by that standard, ‘The Nether’ hits a bull’s eye in artistic terms.” Capital Public Radio

“Compelling science-fiction tells more about the present than what has yet to come. ‘The Nether’ does exactly that.” Voices: River City

PERFORMANCE: 75 minutes, no intermission
