About the Show

With this suspenseful noir tale, her finest new play in years, Pulitzer Prize-winner Beth Henley teams with Tony winning director Robert Falls and an extraordinary cast of stage and screen luminaries.  Set in a seedy motel in Jackson, Mississippi in 1964 and revolving around the night of a murder, The Jacksonian tracks the downward spiral of dentist Bill Perch (Ed Harris) and his encounters with a gold-digging motel employee (Glenne Headly), a treacherous bartender (Bill Pullman), and his estranged wife (Amy Madigan). Explosive and hilarious, The Jacksonian is Henley’s latest portrait of lost souls.
