The play is set in the early 1970s and it follows a group of men trying to make a living by driving unlicensed cabs, known as jitneys.

Suddenly the city threatens to board up the business, the boss's son returns from prison, tempers flare, and the characters reveal some powerful secrets.

Tickets start at $39.
