“Toni Stone” is presented by arrangement with Concord Theatricals on behalf of Samuel French, Inc.

An original play inspired by the book Curveball, The Remarkable Story of Toni Stone by Martha Ackmann. this sensational theatrical event knocks it out of the park with a high intensity glimpse into the world of the first woman to go pro in baseball’s Negro Leagues. Against all odds, Toni Stone blazes a path in the male-dominated sports world, shattering expectations and creating her own set of rules. Follow Toni’s journey as she fights for love, equality and a chance to do what she wants the most — play baseball. Filled with humor and the love of the game, this intimate and profoundly relevant portrait of America will have you cheering along.

NYT Critic’s Pick! “Toni Stone is at its considerable best whenever, like its main character, it’s at its most unconventional.” -New York Times

A provocative story of grit and determination.” -Newsday
