'The Jacksonian' begins performances October 25, starring Ed Harris and Bill Pullman.

Ed Harris is moving into a seedy hotel room in Mississippi! Well, his character is, in the New Group production of Beth Henley’s dark drama The Jacksonian, which begins performances October 25 at off-Broadway’s Acorn Theatre at Theatre Row. Directed by Tony winner Robert Falls, The Jacksonian will play a limited off-Broadway engagement through December 22. Opening night is set for November 7.

In addition to Harris as Bill Perch, The Jacksonian stars Bill Pullman, Glenne Headley, Harris’ real-life wife Amy Madigan and Juliet Brett. Set in Jackson, Mississippi in 1964, The Jacksonian tells the story of a respectable dentist (Harris) who moves into the rundown Jacksonian motel when his wife kicks him out. His downward spiral is punctuated by encounters with his teenage daughter (Brett), a bartender (Pullman) and his estranged wife (Madigan). Revolving around the night of a murder, The Jacksonian unearths the eerie tensions and madness in a town poisoned by racism.

The Jacksonian creative team features set designer Walt Spangler, costume designer Ana Kuzmanic, lighting designer Dan Ionazzi and composer and sound designer Richard Woodbury.
