The seventh installment in Wilson’s 10-play cycle on the black experience in 20th century America, Jitney was last seen in Penumbra in 2000 after making its Minnesota debut on the same stage in 1985. Directed by Penumbra Theatre Founder and Co-Artistic Director Lou Bellamy – widely regarded as one of the foremost interpreters of Wilson’s work – Jitney opens on October 13 and runs through November 6 at Penumbra Theatre in Saint Paul.
