The world-premiere of Lydia R. Diamond's new play, Toni Stone, will begin performances in May of 2019, with Emmy Award winner Uzo Aduba (Orange Is the New Black, Godspell, The Wiz) as Toni Stone, directed by Tony Award winner Pam MacKinnon.
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. Uzo Aduba knocks it out of the park as the first woman to go pro in the Negro Leagues. Featuring a bullpen of players crossing age, race and gender to portray all supporting roles, Toni Stone is a vibrant new play about staying in the game, playing hard, playing smart, and playing your own way.
