Get set to be mesmerized by August Wilson's "Jitney." This Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright, known for masterpieces like "Ma Rainey's Black Bottom," and "Fences," takes us on a ride through 1970s Pittsburgh. Directed by the talented Angela Littleton, this play unearths the compelling tale of a group of itinerant Black drivers providing vital taxi services to their communities. It's a story brimming with family conflict, the shadow of Vietnam, battles against addiction, and confronting the ever-present specter of racism in this terrific ensemble piece.
