There’s no fault in the writing of Dead Wrong, Katherine Glover’s one-woman show inspired by interviews she held with assaulted women who found out they helped imprison the wrong men. The stellar script plumbs the double hell of being both victim and attacker with grace and creativity.
If there is a stumble, it’s Glover’s take on her fictional character, Megan Shepard, who wears her bleeding heart on her sleeve. It’s entirely believable a woman in her torturous position would be racked with guilt. Sustaining that level of pleading with the audience doesn’t help unpack the story, however.
Which is too bad. Writing this strong in a play rooted in social justice doesn’t come along often.
