August Wilson's Jitney

June 28th and 29th
June 28 & 29th - 7:00pm

"Jitney" was the first of August Wilsons plays. The play was written in 1979 and originally produced in 1982 at the small Allegheny Repertory Theatre in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. "Jitney" was republished as a revised work as a part of Wilsons Pittsburg Cycle in 2000. The Pittsburg Cycle (also known as the Century Cycle) is a set of ten plays in different decades of 20th century America. Together, the plays are meant to capture the experiences of African Americans during those decades. Wilson was able to complete this life-long work before his death in 2005.
