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.
Lydia Diamond's new play knocks it out of the park with an intensely theatrical glimpse into the world of the first woman to go pro in the Negro Leagues. Obie Award winner April Matthis leads a bullpen of players crossing age, race and gender in this vibrant look at how we stay in the game and play our 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.
