Brave and powerful performance! Tonya commands the stage and paints a vivid and at times devastating story. She is truly a survivor who has found a way to reclaim herself and inspire us all. This show could be a vehicle for others to heal their past traumas too so I hope she continues to find opportunities to bring it to new audiences. ... full review

A harrowing and at times humorous account of growing up female in a male dominated society. A very personal story about a woman forced to confront the shame of her past and how her love of the game helped to overcome the obstacle of life. ... full review

Tonya Jones delivered an powerful and intelligent solo-show. A well-written and thought-provoking story about personal triumph and a young girl's love of football. From abuse as a child to the healing, self-acceptance and love of life as a woman, Tonya's performance is presented in a thoughtful, emotion-stirring but tender and humorous way. ... full review

Tonya's voice is a powerful one. She tells her story of being a survivor with humor, passion, grace and an incredible strength. We need the bravery of women like Tonya telling stories like these to help heal the trauma experienced by too many young women.... full review

Tonya's willingness to leave it all out there on the stage, without sugar coating it, caused me to dive deeper into my own soul to the places I still carry shame. Her vulnerability empowered me to face and embrace my own pain. I walked away feeling inspired to continue to share my own truth because that is the only way change can happen. She is a warrior princess in my eyes.... full review
