Jitney By August Wilson.
When regular cabs won’t travel to the Pittsburgh Hill District in 1977, local residents turn to the unlicensed taxi company of Jim Becker, and his fellow ‘jitney’ drivers. When Becker’s son returns from prison, a struggle to reconcile the past begins and the future of the company and its drivers is threatened.
Jitney explores the fragile bond between eight men, as they live, love and work in a racially segregated, post-Vietnam America.
August Wilson is one of America’s greatest and most ambitious writers and Jitney is a groundbreaking, modern classic.
