June 2015

Kathleen’s play Pick a Leaf opens at The Theatre Artists Studio. Based on a true story from her book Get Savvy, a young woman from Uganda meets a middle-aged California woman and they discover they share a common mission.

“Pick A Leaf, written by Kathleen Buckstaff and directed by Mary Clare Coleman, is political theater in its most sensitive and compelling form ~ a call to action to decry the abuses of girls as voiced by two women of different cultures, experiences, and pains. They remind us that the telling of their stories is a source of strength.” Broadway World, Herbert Paine 6/19/2015
