Toni Stone is an encyclopedia of baseball stats. She’s got a great arm. And she doesn’t understand why she can't play with the boys.

Uzo Aduba ("Orange Is the New Black," Godspell, The Wiz) knocks it out of the park as the first woman to go pro in the Negro Leagues. Featuring a bullpen of players crossing age, race and gender to portray all supporting roles, Toni Stone is a vibrant new play about staying in the game, playing hard, playing smart and playing your own way.

Toni Stone is based on the book Curveball, The Remarkable Story of Toni Stone by Martha Ackmann.

Produced in association with Samantha Barrie.
