FST Presents The World Premiere Production of 'Paralyzed'



Florida Studio Theatre (FST) presents the World Premiere of Paralyzed by Etan Frankel, a striking story of guilt, personal responsibility, and the power of forgiveness. In this dramatic new play, the discovery of a mysterious suicide note in Georgia hotel bathroom sets two strangers’ lives in unforeseen directions. This production marks the first World Premiere presented as part of FST’s Stage III Series. “Paralyzed is about the capricious nature of life,” said Richard Hopkins, FST’s Producing Artistic Director. “The play examines how ‘luck’ leads to fortune and misfortune, and how, in the end, it is not about if we are ‘lucky’ but how we respond to the events in our lives.” This World Premiere follows Leigh and Lee, two strangers who have little in common besides their names. Leigh is a brilliant, Type-A statistician who tries to maintain control over her invariably changing life. Lee is a driven former football player who is ill-equipped to live a life that does not revolve around athletics. Pain, shame, and mercy set their lives on unexpected paths that go anywhere but according to plan. Paralyzed runs from March 18 to April 10 in FST’s Bowne’s Lab Theatre. Single tickets range from $25-39 and can be purchased online at floridastudiotheatre.org or by phone at 941-366-9000.
