Set in 1970 in the Hill District of Pittsburgh that is served by a makeshift taxi company, Jitney is a beautiful addition to the author's decade-by-decade cycle of plays about the black American experience in the 20th century.
Jitney takes place during an end of an era, where urban renewal threatens to eliminate the makeshift small business Jitney service, which developed to serve the Black community when taxis would not come to their neighborhoods. Jitney is a play about father and sons and brotherhood and love; loss and hope; and ultimately, community, told with passion that transcends all races. Jitney is part of the "Pittsburgh Cycle" of plays created by August Wilson about the African-American experience in Pittsburgh.
Directed by and starring L. Peter Callender

Mystical Native American and Irish history blends magic, politics and realism in Donal O'Kelly's suspenseful examination of the 1916 Easter Rising.
