She received her B.A. from Reed College, and an M.F.A. in Theatre from Sarah Lawrence College, where she was awarded the Stanley and Evelyn Lipkin Prize for Playwriting. In 2008, she received a year-long Dramatists Guild Fellowship for Playwriting. Her comedies “Chemical Imbalance” and “The Golden State” are published by Dramatists Play Service, and her play “Wedding Duet” appears in the 2007 Vintage anthology Laugh Lines: Short Comic Plays. Before joining the faculty at Dell’Arte, Lauren also taught at the State University of New York, Humboldt State University, and American Conservatory Theatre.
