From the Artistic Directors

Why #GirlPower? Well, there are two young women, born on the same day, who deserve a lot of credit for the founding of Thrown Stone: Our daughters Grace and Ilia. We had our first conversations about “maybe doing some theatre” during playdates when they were five. They’re growing up in a world that often doesn’t see or hear them — where their most basic rights and freedoms are up for discussion. We hope #GirlPower pushes against that tide, and that these stories will give you a lot to think about.  But we’ve said enough. The whole point was to let girls do the talking. Enjoy the show!
