Every day’s a hustle for Jim Becker and his neighborhood unlicensed cab company in Pittsburgh’s gritty hill district of the 1970s. Faced with the devastating news that the city is about to shut down their business, this extraordinary group of survivors confront the circumstances that bind and divide them. The eighth in August Wilson’s trailblazing, decade-by-decade cycle of plays, Jitney is a winner of the Drama Critics’ Circle Award and Olivier Award for best play and is a stirring portrayal of Wilson’s black American experience of the 20th century.
