Jonathan Winn and Jason Peck have created Thrown Stone Theatre Company in Ridgefield to put on new plays that excite them, not to be locked into the demands of justifying a pricey home base. They are starting with the U.S. premiere of “Milk,” by Ross Dunsmore, running through July 30, in temporary digs at the Ridgefield Conservatory of Dance.

A chance encounter propels Thrown Stone years into the future
On the sunny afternoon of June 3, 2017, Thrown Stone Production Manager Cyrus Newitt was at the Murray Hill Street Fair in Manhattan. The Snarks, Ltd., a local theatre institution, was attending in costume as historic Murray Hill characters, and Cyrus was their J.P. Morgan. So it was, in tops and tails, that he was introduced to Paula J. Riley, Artistic Director of The Spiral Theatre Studio.
Over the course of many years, the Spiral had developed an innovative theatrical concept: The Spiral Stage. With eight modular rhombus-shaped platforms, the stage can be configured to create an endless array of immersive environments. And since each piece can be easily moved by actors, these environments can morph right before the audience’s eyes.
