“Blisteringly realistic performances…RECOMMENDED!”
Colin Douglas, Chicago Theatre Review 

“Fresh and spontaneous…bound to provoke post-show discussions.”
Larry Bommer, Stage and Cinema

“The Crowd You’re In With should make for good company.”
Seth Saith

A backyard barbeque is the perfect place to tackle life’s big questions: Is the chicken done? Does the band need a new tune? Is this the right time to have a baby? Gilman’s fresh and moving play takes an intimate look at modern families, friendships and the ins and outs of love.
