With the current global accountability, including the #MeToo and #TimesUp movements, Gross Misconduct, directed by Kayvon Khoshkam, brings a riveting take on the twinned experiences of revenge and redemption.  Written by Meghan Gardiner, familiar to Gateway audiences as a brilliant performer, shows she is an equally talented playwright in this world premiere of her provocative new drama.

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. 

Gross Misconduct plays at Gateway Theatre, 6500 Gilbert Road, Richmond, from March 14th to March 23rd, 2019. Tickets, showtimes and details available at gatewaytheatre.com
