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.
Thrown Stone is pleased to announce a 3-performance extension to the U.S. Premiere of Milk by Ross Dunsmore.

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.

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.
