Michael Shutt
Stroke Survivor, Actor, Playwright
After surviving three ischemic strokes in 2015, professional actor and playwright Michael Shutt did what he knew best…he told the story. Using writing as a form of occupational, physical, and cognitive therapy Michael wrote about his stroke and then turned his writing into a Solo Show called A Lesson In Swimming (Every Stroke Is Different) . When theaters shut down during the Coronavirus Pandemic, Michael turned his show into an immersive audio production/radio play available on Apple Podcasts and Spotify. He has been using A Lesson In Swimming to raise stroke awareness and build community. Passionate about connecting with other survivors, Michael moderates and participates in multiple weekly Stroke Survivor and Brain Injury Survivor conversations on Clubhouse and has been a featured guest on a variety of podcasts geared towards the stroke community including Strokecast with Bill Monroe, Recovery After Stroke, The Neuro Nerds, and Making Headway.
