Event

Jitney
Written by August Wilson and Directed by L. Peter Callender.

JITNEY is a story about fathers and sons and brotherhood and love; loss and hope; and ultimately, community, told with passion that transcends all races.

Set in the 1970s in the Hill District of Pittsburgh, that is served by a makeshift taxi company, JITNEY is a beautiful addition to the author's decade-by-decade cycle of plays about the black American experience in the 20th century.

REVIEWS

BAY AREA PLAYS
5 out of 5 stars
August Wilsons play Jitney, produced with magnificent splendor by San Franciscos African-American Shakespeare Company, the first time in their 23-year history they have ventured into the Wilson canon, is a mesmerizing dazzler, a delicious slice of the joy and pain of Black life set in 1977. -David John Chávez

THEATRIUS
The fine cast and direction make us want to catch this Jitney, before it leaves. Wilson and Callender bring the Black working mans experience to life in this gem. -Irene Nelson

THEATER & SUCH
The story of Jitney is relevant now as so many small arts groups are struggling with funding cuts and threats to culture by the forces that be. -Christine Okon
