Toni Stone

Friday, August 19 through Sunday, September 4
The Arts Factory at Westend Studios
Presented by Three Bone Theatre Inc.

Declared the Best New Play of 2019 by The Wall Street Journal, this sensational theatrical event knocks it out of the park with this incredible true story.

History is filled with trailblazers and Toni Stone was one of them. A pioneer, Toni Stone is the first woman to play baseball in the Negro Leagues, 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.

A vibrant new play about staying in the game, playing hard, playing smart and playing your own way. This show contains adult language and themes, including trauma to women and Black people, recommended for ages 16+

Starring Nasha Shandri as Toni and ten top-talent Charlotte actors in an ensemble depicting dozens of characters, you don’t want to miss the Charlotte premiere of Toni Stone at The Arts Factory at West End Studios.
