Toni Stone in San Francisco

Submit Updates Images | Videos | Cast | Creative Team | | Edit

Toni Stone dreams of nothing but baseball. But to become the first woman to play professionally as a member of the Negro Leagues Indianapolis Clowns, she must confront hostile crowds, ruthless team owners, and players who slide spikes first. As she negotiates lifes challenges and opportunities on and off the field, Toni stays true to herself and reaches for who she can be. In this new play, Diamond (Broadways Stick Fly and Showtimes The Affair) uncovers the theatrical journey in Martha Ackmanns book, Curveball: The Remarkable True Story of Toni Stone. The culmination of a six-year collaboration between Diamond and director Pam MacKinnon, Toni Stone is the extraordinary, real-life story of a trail-blazing Bay Area athlete.
