It's the 1970s, and regular cabs won't travel to the Pittsburgh Hill District. So the residents have to turn to each other, leading to the dramatic exploits of a group of men hustling to make a living as jitneys -- unofficial, unlicensed cab drivers. "Jitney" is the '70s installment of Pulitzer-winning playwright August Wilson's renowned cycle of 10 plays depicting African-American life in the 20th century. In this explosive play, a ragtag group of men work in a jitney cab company where tensions run high as the city threatens to shut it down to make room for redevelopment. The station owner Becker has other things to worry about, as his son Booster is about to be released from prison after 20 years. Other characters include the motor-mouthed Turnbo who meddles in the lives of his fellow drivers; Youngblood, a Vietnam War veteran and his girlfriend Rena; and Shealy, a numbers-taker who uses the station as his base. This gripping portrait of African-American life, penned by one of America's greatest writers, is onstage at St. Paul's Penumbra Theatre. [less-]
