The Nether I've read the studies No one has been able to draw a conclusive correlation between virtual behaviour and behaviour in world The Nether is a virtual wonderland that provides total sensory immersion Just log in choose an identity and indulg This was recommended to me by a stranger who asked me about my research interests The play does sound entirely up my alley cyberspace selfhood the body ethics etc However The Nether is clearly not written for me or other people well versed in science fiction Instead this play is Baby's First Science Fiction None of the content is remotely novel nor is the execution particularly forceful or compelling The plotting is pedestrian and the characters have the annoying tendency of announcing themes in hyper articulate fashion Not that the stage absolutely needs realism but a deft hand could have walked the line between Brechtian estrangement and didactic pronouncements successfullyThis is sci fi for people who have never encountered sci fi The Nether really calls into uestion the class dynamics of the theatre in an interesting way while the novel is intrinsically bourgeois the stage should be less lateral in class accessibility Yet and the stage has become the playset for the elite as ticket prices increase to prohibitive levels The Nether with its simplistic ethics and bourgeois attitudes around sex and performance speaks to its rich audience inflating their ego with pseudo intellectual nonsense that sci fi has already been working out for decades in the ghetto of genre Frankly cyberpunk and postcyberpunk theorized and problematized the ethics of virtuality twenty to thirty years in better stylish less tryhard fashionIn a typically bourgeois manoeuver the play uses pedophilia to make its shocking points because I suppose audiences wouldn't consider the ethics of a crime less sensational Of course The Nether would involve pseudo Victorian garb language and architecture in its cyberspace as nothing speaks of the corruptible innocence of youth than a Victorian orphan This play is like a 15 year old's attempt at being edgy The Nether is awful
