Jitney is play 8 in August Wilson s Century Cycle Jitney tells the story of a group of men who run a cab service Wilson focuses on their livelihood their dreams and their imperfections I enjoyed the cast of characters as well as the monologues from a few of them Although very minor I did like reading the references to characters in earlier plays However I felt the ending was a little lacking Fences is still the best of the plays so far Two to go The Isles A History each decade on the black KING experience in twentieth century America A thoroughly revised version of a play Wilson first wrote in 197.

Jitney Author August Wilson Review à 2 9 Jitney was produced in New York for the first time in spring 2000 winning rave reviews and the accolade of the New York Drama Critics Circle as the best play of the yearOne of contemporary theater's most distinguished and elouent voices Wilson writes not about historical events or the pathologies of the black. Wellthis is not the first time I have read this play but I re read it for the project I m working on with my US History class I was an intern at Seattle Repertory Theater in 2001 2002 when I first read this play and encountered the man who wrote it I got to spend some time with August Wilson during that time and I had nothing but admiration for this particular play I loved the choral nature of the dialogue and the complicated relationship between the father and son Becker and Booster I also think that this is one of the best ends to an Act 1 that I ve ever read and seen August paid me a compliment during the time I spent with himhe told the other intern that was attached to him and I was only tagging along that she could bring me often because I had a good sense of humor I laughed a lot during the rehearsals for JITNEY when the rest of the theater was uiet and anyone who knows my laugh knows that it s infectiousAnyway it s still a good play and I really enjoyed re reading it62919Re reading for scene study class in a prison class I m teachingTwo students in one of the prison classes I m teaching are doing one of the BeckerBooster scenes and I re read the play because it looks like I might have to step in and play Becker because that student has ceased to come to class and the student playing Booster has worked very hard on his scene alreadyIt s interesting how life experience can make the perceptions one has for a play change I have been teaching at a predominantly African American Community College for the past five years and the vernacular has become second nature to me I guess I have gotten old too because the line Turnbo says about people not respecting themselves and thus not respecting others really resonated with me as someone who has transformed into someone who says things like These young people don t understand My father died since the first time I encountered this play and Becker s line that references how things don t matter after a monumental death and how you can t wait for God to decide to hold your hand if you want to change your situation you have to change it That took several years of being stuck in mourning to learn And just like Becker I realized that the things I thought used to matter just don t any I am also married now and have been in a relationship with the same person for over 11 years and the line Becker has about his second marriage about pulling and pushing really struck me This idea that sometimes one person pulls and the other pushes or the other way around but it s a good marriage as long as those movements are in the same direction It isn t easy butit s part of the work Anyway I m nervous to step into a role that a I should never do based on gender race age etc b is very fraught emotionally which is hard to do with the armor needed to teach behind bars butI have no choiceBack cover 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 twentieth centuryuote I like Becker Ain t nothing left to do now but get married Come November it ll be seventeen years that me and Lucille been together Seventeen years I told her say work with me She say okay I wasn t sure what it meant myself I thought it meant pull or push together But she showed me one can push and the other can pullas long as it s in the same direction You know what I mean It ain t all gonna flow together all the time That s life As long as it don t break apart When you look around you ll see that all you got is each other There ain t much Even when it look like there isyou come one day to find out there ain t much worth having Sex Toys 101 A Playfully Uninhibited Guide elouent voices Wilson writes not about historical The Joy in Business events or the pathologies of the black.

Jitney Author August Wilson Review à 2 Community but as he says about the uniue particulars of black culture I wanted to place this culture onstage in all its richness and fullness and to demonstrate its ability to sustain us through profound moments in our history in which the larger society has thought less of us than we have thought of ourselves. This was the first August Wilson play I ever saw in an unforgettable production at the Union Suare Theatre but I d never read the script itself until now and it s just as wonderful on the page as on the stage Wilson s gorgeous ensemble piece about car service drivers in Pittsburgh gifts each character with an arc and at least one lovely monologue and the individual speeches can be like arias at times an appropriate term given the operatic scope of Jitney There may be playwrights as good as Wilson but none better
