He grew up in Kansas City, Kansas, went to K-State, then to Juilliard, and he’s already seen his plays produced at Lincoln Center and in regional theatres across the country. One of them, When I Come to Die, opens this weekend at the Kansas City Rep. Randy Mason watched as cast and crew started the rehearsal process on Jackson’s death row drama. When I Come to Die starts in previews on February 14. It will run on the Rep’s Copaken stage downtown through March 15. On March 13, a special performance to benefit Reaching Out From Within will be held. That organization works with incarcerated individuals to help them more productively re-enter society. Alumni of the group will speak after the show.
