The Jacksonian Tickets

Set in Jackson, Mississippi, in 1964, The Jacksonian tells the story of respectable dentist Bill Perch, who moves into the seedy Jacksonian Motel after his wife kicks him out. 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 unearths the eerie tensions and madness in a town poisoned by racism.

What Is the Story of The Jacksonian?
Beth Henley’s eerie, darkly funny drama revolves around Bill, a disillusioned dentist who moves into the Jacksonian Motel in an attempt to repair his dysfunctional relationship with his wife, Susan. During his stay, Bill meets Fred, a bartender at the motel, and Eva, a maid and Fred's girlfriend, who is obsessed with getting a ring on her finger. As Bill’s stay stretches on for six months, he begins to lose touch with reality, further alienating his relationship with his wife and awkward teenage daughter, Rosy. Meanwhile, Rosy strikes up an unlikely friendship with Fred. Leading up to the night of a murder, The Jacksonian explores the strange secrets and racial tensions lurking under the surface in the town of Jackson, Mississippi, in 1964.
