Jitney is the eighth play in August Wilson’s Pittsburgh Cycle.

It takes place in The Hill District of Pittsburgh in 1977, in a gypsy cab station, during Pittsburgh’s period of so-called “urban renewal.”

As the city tries to shut down businesses -- including the cab station -- to make way for a new building, we meet five gypsy cab drivers struggling to survive.

Wilson’s ensemble piece puts human faces to the process of gentrification seizing the United States, telling of the specific human struggles of

Becker, Youngblood, Turnbo, Fielding and Doub as they cling to a nostalgic past, while reaching for an uncertain future.
