Wednesday, January 3rd, 2018 - Road Less Traveled Productions (RLTP) will welcome 2018 with mystery sci-fi drama The Nether by Jennifer Haley.

Synopsis: Sometime in the near future, the Internet has evolved into the "Nether", a place where gender, age, identity, and truth are malleable, and your darkest desires and fears are all-too-obtainable. Winner of the 2012 Susan Smith Blackburn Prize for Drama, The Nether is a mystery/crime drama where even thoughts are actions, and every action has a real-world consequence...
"Imagine an episode of Law & Order: SVU written by... Ray Bradbury."- Ben Brantley, The New York Times
