The Nether

Murky online paedo retreat: The Nether explores the fantasy-reality divide

Theatre ReviewOn a bare stage, two chairs face each other across a table. At the table sits Morris, an investigating detective employed by The Nether – the virtual counterpart to the In-World – where users in the year 2050 can live out their every fantasy.
