The Black Rep's Jitney Poster
Set in the late 1970s, August Wilson’s first play in his 10-play cycle of 10 decades of history in Pittsburgh takes place in the midst of urban renewal, which threatens to eliminate the makeshift gypsy cab service. The story follows a group of men who make a living driving these cabs, as they navigate love as fathers and sons, loss and hope, and ultimately, community. This must-see work comes to life with a passion that transcends all races. Adult: $50; Senior $45; Student $15 (all tickets $20 on Wendesday 5/25/2022)
