"Welcome to season 11," Urbanite Theatre artistic director Summer Wallace wrote in an email. "From the relentless demands of caregiving to adrenaline-pumping solitude and profound human connection, the remarkable stories of Season 11 will stretch the boundaries of what great theatre can accomplish."
