Genre: Comedy
A comedy by Michael Weems

Directed by Karen M. Dabney and produced by Sara Towber.
Onward, Forward is a comic look at the ongoing relationship between Joe, a disgruntled folk singer dying to rock out and his songwriter/manager, Ryan who searches for a cure to life in the offices of whichever doctor his insurance will allow. Their frustrating friendship is put to the test in suburbia where what starts as a typical gig leads to encounters with a sharp-witted single mother, a sorority girl looking for a way to entertain herself for the summer, and parents that seem harmless on the outside. As their musical pit stop gets extended, Joe and Ryan find themselves in a situation that threatens to make them lose who they are and who they want to be.

With a stellar cast, (Bill Bria, Rachel Dorfman, Whit Elliott, Gregory Taft Gerard, Alixx Schottland, Michael Weems, Theodore White, and Shuo Zhang), Onward, Forward provides a humorous and moving telling of a story about staying in touch with reality, valuing friends and family, and knowing when to let go.
