MONDAY NIGHT DRAMAS

September 17th at 7:00pm

Toni Stone by Lydia R. Diamond, Resident Playwright Alum

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. When a young Henry Aaron left for the majors, Stone replaced him and became the first woman to play professional baseball in the Negro Leagues . No woman matched her baseball accomplishments and, many would say, her perseverance—then or ever since. In the 1950s as the United States was poised between Jim Crow and the Civil Rights Movement, Toni Stone waged her own battle against prejudice. Toni Stone is a vibrant new play about staying in the game, playing hard, playing smart, and playing your own way.
