About This Show

Jackson, Mississippi, 1964. When his wife kicks him out, respectable dentist Bill Perch (Ed Harris) moves into the seedy Jacksonian Motel. There, his downward spiral is punctuated by encounters with his teenage daughter, a gold-digging motel employee (Glenne Headly), a treacherous bartender (Bill Pullman), and his now estranged wife (Amy Madigan). Set against the investigation of a recent lynching and climaxing in a crime of passion, The Jacksonian, brimming with suspense and dark humor, unearths the eerie tensions and madness in a town poisoned by racism. This play premiered at the Geffen Playhouse in February 2012 in a production directed by Robert Falls, featuring Ed Harris, Glenne Headly, Amy Madigan and Bill Pullman. Additional casting to be announced.
