Opens Mar 8, 2024:


By August Wilson

Directed by Angela Littleton

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.
March 8-24, 2024. Thu-Sat 7:30pm; Sun 2pm.

Tickets: $24, $19, $12.
