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.

Paralyzed by Etan Frankel will play from March 18, 2020 - April 10, 2020 in FST's Bowne's Lab Theatre. Single tickets are available online by clicking the button above or by calling the FST Box Office at 941.366.9000.
