Bod Brief: Washburn theatre preforms ‘The Nether’

Staff Report

The Washburn University Theatre Department will be preforming “The Nether,” a sci-fi crime drama, at 7:30 p.m. Feb. 19, 20, 26 and 27 and Feb. 28 at 2 p.m. in the Andrew J. and Georgia Neese Gray Theatre. The play, written by Jennifer Haley, revolves around a detective who is investigating a virtual reality world, called The Hideaway, that allows pedophiles to live out their fantasies. The play deals with questions of right and wrong as well as questions about how and if those definitions of right and wrong change whether the crime is a cybercrime or a real-world crime. The show is free for students with their student IDs and is $8 for community members. The show is not recommended for those under 17 due to strong adult content.
