Virtual Reality is a 2000 play by British playwright Alan Ayckbourn. It is set in a modern world where everyone communicates through electronic gadgetty, and is about Alex, a man who invents "Viewdows", a large screen for people to look at pleasant views.

Unusually for his later plays, Ayckbourn was unhappy with the result, and this play was not published and not made available for production.
