Jitney by August Wilson

September 15, 2017, 12:00 AM - September 25, 2017, 10:00 PM

The eighth play in August Wilson’s Pittsburgh Cycle is set in a gypsy cab station in 1977. Regular taxi cabs will not travel to the Pittsburgh Hill District of the 1970s, and so the residents turn to jitneys—unofficial, unlicensed taxi cabs—that operate in the community. This play portrays the lives of the jitney drivers at the station owned by Jim Becker.
