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 murder 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.
