Sylvia


Lauren played Kate in Sylvia by A.R. Gurney, at Texas Christian University, directed by Natalie Guess.

Empty nesters Greg and Kate have moved back to Manhattan after 22 years in the suburbs. As Kate tells Greg: “The dog phase of my life is definitely over.” But life has a way of giving you what you think you don’t want. Greg finds Sylvia, a street-smart lab/poodle mix, and brings her home. She promptly becomes a bone of contention between Greg and Kate, testing their marriage to hilarious and touching effect.
