August Wilson's Jitney

Not Currently Playing
Marx Theatre

Directed by TIMOTHY DOUGLAS

Every day's a hustle.
The first script in August Wilson’s trailblazing American Century Cycle about the 20th-century African-American experience, Jitney follows a group of men who operate an unlicensed car service in Pittsburgh’s Hill District during the 1970s. As they hustle to survive, they’re forced to confront the potential destruction of their community when the city threatens to close their station and board up the block in the name of urban renewal. Winner of the Drama Critics' Circle Award and Olivier Award for best play, Jitney showcases Wilson's unequaled talent for celebrating the quiet dignity that can be found in the everyday struggles of life.

 "Thoroughly engrossing ... holds us in charmed captivity." — The New York Times

 

ADVISORY: Jitney is appropriate for adult and older teenage audiences. The play contains strong adult language, discussions of racial justice and other mature themes.

RUNNING TIME: The show runs approximately 2 hours and 45 minutes, including one intermission.
