Following the sold-out run of AfterlifeOvertime, Morvern Productions returns to The White Bear next month for a limited run of performances of The Nethernauts. The latest play by Tom Kane, once again set in the epic mythical space Limbo, is directed by James Barlow.
Fortune 500 CEO Tony Essential has been missing for days. Having seen his company’s stock drop in the wake of the 2008 financial crash he throws himself off a cliff and wakes up in a cave…
Whilst there he encounters The Nethernauts, two underworld smugglers who have been surviving the harsh conditions of Limbo for some time now. Through them Tony learns about this fantastical realm and the dark creatures that live within. But where they see fear, hiding and death, Tony sees something else. He sees opportunity.
Will this trio be able to surpass their differences and find a way back home? Or will a much darker force take hold, and snuff out any chance of hope?
Featuring a talented ensemble including Katie Georgiou (Bits), Siân Davis (Pieces), Noah Marullo (Wristwatch, Fallen Angel), The Nethernauts explores one story from the ‘Liminal Cycle’ of plays. Using frameworks from world mythological epics and the history of economics, Tom has created a rich world, full of religious and mythological references and homages. The Liminal Cycle charts the rise and fall of a capitalist city built in the underworld and its subsequent effect on the afterlives of humankind. The Nethernauts explores both the events that lead to the genesis of this city and the deranged man behind it all.
