During a time when licensed cabs would not visit Pittsburgh’s Hill District, Jim Becker sets a ride-service to meet the needs of his community. 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 Century Cycle, Jitney is a winner of the Drama Critics’ Circle Award and Olivier Award for best play.
