Growing up: A review of TA Department’s BFF

“Struggling a lot with identity, Lauren’s story is told by the careful acting of Lorica…Her exasperation and youthful naiveté perfectly portray an innocent preteen so ready for the world. Even when this is no longer the case, as seen in her scenes as an older Lauren, she still manages to appear have a multitude of emotions that go beyond just being inhibited.”
