Cooper or P&S makes a dead front GFCI that mounts in a device box or maybe use one of the portable GFCI cords and hardwire it in as your power cord?

Might also consider a .1 ohm/10 watt resistor to simulate roughly 60 feet of #12 wire in the neutral circuit.  I guess that just depends on the wiring where you use it for a demo.  If you wind up somewhere with a bootleg ground, you won't get much difference between your neutral and ground!

Sorry to have started this ball rolling and then not replied to the many good comments.  I've been out for nearly a week.

Update on what I've done here:

1)   While I was gone, I killed the breaker.   Upon return, I unplugged everything from the bad circuit and flipped breaker back on.
2)   I have two 3-light testers, a Greenlee GT-10 and a Woodhead 1750.   Both provide correct readings on known good circuits. 
3)   Both testers show the first 3 outlets in the circuit to be good.   All outlets downstream of the 3rd show Hot & Ground reversed.

I deduce from this that either a) outlet 4 is bad or b) wiring between outlets 3 and 4 is bad.   Are there other possibilities?
