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.

Chicago Reader - Somewhat Recommended

"...To its credit, The Crowd You're in With does feel like a representative snapshot of its era, both politically and theatrically, but both worlds have matured exponentially in the past decade. Besides gender-swapping one ancillary character, Derek Bertelsen's AstonRep production doesn't make much of a case about what its arguments say about the world today."

"...Gilman's wise drama examines choices and consequences. It's bound to provoke post-show discussions among audience members eager to sort out her ambivalent arguments for making babies."

Chicago Theatre Review - Recommended

"...In spite of this being at least the third Chicagoland production of Gilman’s one-act play, Director Derek Bertelsen has done a fine job, putting his own stamp on this version. He’s capably led the cast through their paces, encouraging blisteringly realistic performances from his ensemble that are most successful in his leading players. Jeremiah Barr’s scenic and property design is detailed enough that his set looks like a real Chicago backyard. Artistically lit by Samantha Barr, the late afternoon sunshine fades into the shadowy moonlight of an early summer evening. And complemented by Melanie Thompson’s sound design, the night’s pyrotechnics conclude with actual Fourth of July fireworks."
