Jitney – In Rehearsals

WTM are thrilled to be welcoming the acclaimed Headlong to Worthing this July with their new production of August Wilson’s Jitney. Jitney will play at the Connaught Theatre from Tuesday 19 – Saturday 23 July, tickets are available here

The show will run at The Old Vic before touring to Worthing and offering you the opportunity to see the very best in British theatre right in the heart of Worthing. 

Set in a cab office in 1970s Pittsburgh Jitney follows the lives of unlicensed taxicab or jitney drivers as they try to navigate their own personal lives and how they are going to save their station and their community. Poetic, emotional and nuanced the show explores the conflict of personalities, ages and experience in an exceptional character driven production.
