Set in the late 1970s, August Wilson’s first play in his 10-play cycle of 10 decades of history in Pittsburgh takes place in the midst of urban renewal, which threatens to eliminate the makeshift gypsy cab service. The story follows a group of men who make a living driving these cabs, as they navigate love as fathers and sons, loss and hope, and ultimately, community. This must-see work comes to life with a passion that transcends all races.

The Black Rep is requiring that all patrons be fully vaccinated or have received a negative COVID test result no more than 72 hours prior to coming on campus. A COVID-19 vaccination card or a negative test result must be presented upon entering the building.
