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 (Juliet Brett), a gold-digging motel employee (Glenne Headly), a treacherous bartender (Bill Pullman), and his now-estranged wife (Amy Madigan). Revolving around the night of a murder, The Jacksonian, brimming with suspense and dark humor, unearths the eerie tensions and madness in a town poisoned by racism.
Written by Beth Henley, The Jacksonian made its New York Premiere in October of 2013 at The New Group. Directed by Robert Falls, the production starred Ed Harris, Glenne Headly, Amy Madigan, Bill Pullman, and Juliet Brett.
