Slidell Little Theatre presents August Wilson's Jitney, onstage weekends January 20-29, 2023. Performances are 8 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays with matinees on Sundays at 2 p.m. 

Set in 1977 in the Hill District of Pittsburgh that is served by a makeshift taxi company, Jitney is a beautiful addition to August Wilson’s decade-by-decade cycle of plays about the Black American experience in the 20th century. Jitney is the eighth play in August Wilson’s Pittsburgh Cycle. It takes place in a Gypsy cab station, during Pittsburgh’s period of so-called “urban renewal.” As the city tries to shut down businesses - including the cab station - to make way for a new building, we meet five Gypsy cab drivers struggling to survive. Directed by Will Williams.

Tickets are $28 for adults, $22 for students and seniors, with discounts for members and season pass holders.
