A world without consequence'

Jennifer Haley's critically acclaimed masterpiece makes its Scottish premier.

In the near future, you will be able to dive into the Nether, a virtual reality that has made the internet obsolete. The Nether provides endless possibilities for fulfilling any dreams and desires you may have – just log in and choose an identity. The promise of fully immersive virtual reality has won over society so completely that most people work, study and interact there, leaving the real world an empty shell in comparison.

The Nether examines the borders of the permissible in the virtual world, revolving around a young detective’s investigation of a seemingly pristine and masterfully-crafted Victorian server. Having uncovered a disturbing brand of entertainment, she triggers an interrogation which leads to an exploration of the morality of identity in a world where nothing is real.
