In a moment of global accountability, including the #MeToo and #TimesUp movements, comes Gross Misconduct, a riveting take on the twinned experiences of revenge and redemption.
Now in his early fifties, Deke has been in Millhaven Prison without a cellmate for the past twenty years. He is surprised and irritated when Corey, a twenty-something rich kid, joins him in his cell. With little in common, other than a shared passion for hockey, tensions emerge as the pair are forced to share a tiny space.
As a complicated bond begins to form between these two unlikely cellmates, the ongoing threat of violence takes a new form when Corey begs Deke for protection inside the prison. The men are forced to re-evaluate how they see each other after the true nature of their respective crimes is revealed. Old patterns resurface and Deke is finally brought face-to-face with a decision that he made twenty years ago.
Meghan Gardiner—beloved by Gateway audiences as a brilliant performer—shows she is an equally talented playwright in the world premiere of her provocative new drama.
