Jackson, Mississippi, 1964. When his wife kicks him out, respectable dentist Bill Perch moves into the seedy Jacksonian Motel. There, his downward spiral is punctuated by encounters with his teenage daughter, a gold-digging motel employee, a treacherous bartender, and his now-estranged wife. Revolving around the night of a murder, The Jacksonian brims with suspense and dark humor and unearths the eerie tensions and madness in a town poisoned by racism.
A play by Beth Henley, directed by Robin Burke.
