The Urbanite Theatre Full-Season Production Schedule
by Matt Schatz
October 21 – November 27, 2022
Summary: Siblings Mordy and Jane have a problem. Their dreadful, centenarian
grandfather is an emotional and financial tax on the family, and he just won’t die.
Scheming almost entirely via sarcastic and misspelled text messages, the siblings hatch
an outrageous plan to relieve their family of their grandfather’s burden. Zany, twisted
and inventive, this dark comedy reminds us it’s much easier to write what we could
never say face to face.
BIRDS OF NORTH OF AMERICA
By Anna Ouyang Moench
January 6 – February 12, 2023
As birders, John and his daughter Caitlyn adore spending tender autumn
days attempting to catch glimpses of elusive birds. But as seasons, the climate, and
global politics change, the two find their connection as rare as a red-headed
Woodpecker. In a lyrical and endearing family portrait, Birds of North America unfolds in
detailed layers like the scattered leaves of each passing year.
BACKWARDS FORWARDS BACK
By Jacqueline Goldfinger
March 24 – April 23, 2023
When a soldier returns from war carrying the ghosts of his tour, he’s faced
with a sobering decision: address his alarming PTSD with Virtual Reality therapy, or risk
losing access to his family forever. Can this new technology re-calibrate the brains and
bodies of wounded soldiers? This electric, vivid, one-man drama studies the power of
healing and finding strength in vulnerability.
THAT MUST BE THE ENTRANCE TO HEAVEN
by Franky D. Gonzalez
June 9 – July 9, 2023
Glory. Survival. Legacy. Citizenship. Four Latino boxers all chase a world
title to achieve their personal versions of heaven. But to get there, they must battle each
other, their own battered bodies, and the universe itself. All four men walk the line
between life and death in this poignant, poetic collision of combat and cosmos.
