    The Nether offers complete freedom - a new 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 online entertainment, she triggers an interrogation into the darkest corners of imagination, challenging the boundaries between personal liberty and moral chaos.

    The Nether is Jeremy's first production as Artistic Director of Headlong and opened at the Royal Court in July 2014 before transferring to the West End in February 2015.
