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

This show was powerful from the start, and had a nice full-circle ending. The performer offered a lovely blend of dramatic tension with occasional light-hearted humor as she took us on the haunting journey of her struggle to overcome sexual abuse as a minor. This gal has some guts. ... 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 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
