WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Cheering audiences rose to their feet and critics throughout the Southland spun superlatives as the curtain fell on Fences, but that was only the beginning for SCR and August Wilson. Now it's the 1970s, and urban renewal threatens a storefront station, where the drivers of gypsy cabs (known as jitneys) share their funny stories about the day's fares and meddle in each other's lives. Cronies drop in, fights break out, a son faces his father after 20 years in prison, lovers make up, and just as we get to know them, Wilson asks us to look again.
