Acclaimed Theatre company Headlong present a new production of August Wilson’s Jitney

‘It don’t always turn out like you think it is. You don’t always have the kind of life that you dream about. You know what I mean?’
Jim Becker and his unlicensed drivers take the people of Pittsburgh Hill District where regular taxi cabs won’t – healing old wounds and tearing new ones as they pass the time in a condemned taxi rank between pick-ups.

Directed by Tinuke Craig (The Color Purple), August Wilson’s (Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom) groundbreaking modern classic explores the fragile bond between eight men as they live, love and work in a racially segregated, post-Vietnam America.

Reviews


“ This may be one of Wilson’s less well-known plays, but this revival shows it at its best. It’s a powerful, intense study of characters tackling problems caused by class, race and generational divide, and deserves to be seen by as wide an audience as possible”

The Stage

“ rich, poignant drama, impeccably staged”

The Telegraph

“ Jitney is a character-centred play – one that this production and its ensemble make utterly believable”

The Guardian
