Knox College Theatre presents "The Nether," by Jennifer Haley, Wednesday through Saturday, November 2 through 5, in Harbach Theatre, Ford Center for the Fine Arts.
Tickets are $10 for adults, $5 for senior citizens and Knox College Alumni, and free to all students and Knox faculty and staff. The play presents topics that some viewers may find disturbing, and is intended for mature audiences only.
Directed by Jeff Grace, associate professor of theatre, "The Nether" explores the psychological and ethical consequences of computer-based simulations and their relationship to real life.
"The play is set in the not-so-distant future," Grace explains. "It's a detective drama that can seem confusing at first, as it alternates between the stark reality of a police interrogation room and the dark side of the internet-based virtual reality. The play raises disturbing questions about identity, personal privacy, illicit fantasies, technology, and the morality of the virtual world."
"The Nether" premiered in 2013 and received the 2012 Susan Smith Blackburn Prize. The Knox production is presented by special arrangement with Samuel French, Inc., New York, NY.
