Paralyzedby Etan Frankel
WORLD PREMIERE. Leigh and Lee are two strangers who have little in common besides their names—she is a Type A statistician and he is an aggressive former athlete. But the discovery of a mysterious suicide note in a hotel bathroom sets their lives on unexpected paths that go anywhere but according to plan. "Paralyzed" tells a striking story of guilt, personal responsibility, and the power of forgiveness.

Alexander ("Stuey") is honored to be invited back for the completion of a project we began years ago. He made his FST debut in 2019 as Christopher in their award-winning production of The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time. He played the same role just months before at Actors Theatre of Louisville and, since the pandemic, was invited back to play Tybalt in Actors Theatre's remotely-crafted Romeo & Juliet: Louisville 2020. He has various theatre and film credits in Chicago, and enjoys dabbling as a writer, designer, and fight choreographer. www.AlexanderJStuart.com
