A vibrant new play about staying in the game, playing hard, playing smart and playing your own way
History is filled with trailblazers and Toni Stone was one of them. Considered a pioneer, Toni Stone is the first woman to play baseball in the Negro Leagues, also making her the first woman to play professionally in a men’s league in the 1950s. Against all odds, Stone shattered expectations and created her own set of rules in the male-dominated sports world.
Based on Martha Ackmann’s book Curveball: The Remarkable Story of Toni Stone, award-winning playwright Lydia R. Diamond tells the dynamic story of Stone’s journey of perseverance and resilience just to do what she loved the most — play baseball.
This show contains adult language and themes, including trauma to women and Black people, recommended for ages 16+
