Named one of the best plays of the year by The New York Times, Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Beth Henley’s eerie, darkly humorous play The Jacksonian will transport you to Jackson, Mississippi in 1964. When his wife kicks him out, respectable dentist Bill Perch moves into the unsettling world of 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 as the subversive becomes commonplace and the passage of time becomes hauntingly unpredictable. This Southern Gothic story makes its Midwest premiere at Chicago’s Profiles Theatre.
