Play - Revival - Broadway Premiere
Running Time: 2hrs 25mins

Set in the early 1970s, this richly textured piece follows a group of men trying to eke out a living by driving unlicensed cabs, or jitneys. When the city threatens to board up the business and the boss’ son returns from prison, tempers flare, potent secrets are revealed and the fragile threads binding these people together may come undone at last. 

For The Record:

"Jitney," the eighth play in August Wilson's Pittsburgh cycle, was written in 1979 but did not have its New York Premiere until it was produced (Off-Broadway) by Second Stage in 2000.
