The New Group's off-Broadway production of Beth Henley's new drama, The Jacksonian, will offer an Actors Fund Special Benefit Performance on Sunday, December 15 at 8pm. The production, directed by Robert Falls, runs through December 22 at Theatre Row's Acorn Theatre.

Academy Award nominee Ed Harris leads the cast as Bill Perch, a dentist who has been kicked out of his home by his wife (played by Amy Madigan) and has taken a room at the seedy Jacksonian motel. The company also features Bill Pullman, Glenne Headly, and Juliet Brett. The drama premiered in 2012 at the Geffen Playhouse in Los Angeles.
