August Wilson’s Jitney

February 28 - March 29, 2020

Bagley Wright Theater

In the 1970s, when licensed cabs refused to service Pittsburgh’s predominantly black Hill District, Jim Becker establishes a rideshare service to meet the needs of his community.

Faced with the devastating news that the city is about to shut down their business, Becker and his cab drivers struggle to confront an uncertain future. An emotional family reunion, generational conflict, and workplace gossip set the stage for drama as each man fights to prevail in the face of adversity.

Produced by Eric Falkenstein and Ron Simons in association with Manhattan Theatre Club
