Deadly Women S05, Ep04 - "To Love And To Murder"
"To many, it seemed to be a perfect life. Jane and Robert Dorotik had been married for 30 years and together they had 3 children. But life behind closed doors was very different. Concerned over money matters, Jane worried that if the couple divorced; she would have to pay her husband a large yearly alimony, putting a crimp in her plans to expand her own business. On February 13th, 2000, Bob disappeared. Early the next morning, his body was found on a jogging trail in the woods. He had been beaten and strangled. Jane Dorotik was eventually found guilty of first-degree murder and is serving 25 years to life in prison. To this day, she maintains her innocence." ~ From Investigation Discovery - Deadly Women

W;t at New Theatre, 10 June - 10 July 2010
"The successful translation of this to stage is largely in the hands of the lead, Karen Bayly, whose performance is exceptional." Concrete Playground
"Bayly's impassioned (if haughty) academic ... her desperation to retain her sense of relevance and her sense of self both engaging and honest. Bayly does a tremendous job as a woman alone, struggling to find a way to cope with words when words are made redundant. " MC Reviews
"Karen Bayly gave an impressive performance as the Professor." Sydney Arts Guide
"Karen Bayly's performance is, like the subject matter, stoical, intellectual and layered." OzBabyBoomers
