Backwards in High Heels

Written By Jim Henry
Directed By Ken Sawyer

For better or worse, in sickness and in health and back again, Michael and Gen dance their way through the Greatest Generation of war and peace, fame and fortune; loving, cherishing and despising each other, as long as they both shall live. Sometimes the most important thing to remember is the love you will never forget… a romantic memory play about when life meets love.

“Gracefully directed by Ken Sawyer, the cast transitions smoothly from one segment to another, and it is the performances — especially from the vibrant Gilbert — that endow ‘Backward’ with a credible sense of lived-in reality.” – LA Times
