A slow building awkward night with friends, perfectly brought to an ambiguous close A little hard to judge for seeming to take place on my literal 2007 era backyard patio.

So yeah, Rebecca Gilman is pretty much my favorite The Crowd You re In With is an examination of three couples, one couple who have decided not to have children, one couple who are pregnant, and one couple who are trying, so far unsuccessfully, to get pregnant, and who may not both be committed to the decision The setting is a social one the three couples and later a single friend get together for a barbecue on July 4th, and eventually the conversation turns to parenthood, with the differing cou [...]

Thought provoking exploration of the entrance into adulthood, the notion of leaving a legacy, and the question of having children.This play surprised me, in that I had no idea it s entire subject matter revolved around the question of having and rearing kids I mean it was a pleasant surprise though, because it was handled fairly well discussing different types of relationships, the implications of having a child, and the reasons why certain people in certain relationships decide to be parents an [...]

I related so much to the neighbor characters and oh, Dwight They all say it so perfectly I like kids, I do I like to act as educator, baby sitter and cool adult they can look up to for the children of others My nephew and my grandnephew both brighten my life and the kids I meet at work are often so excited to get their books or movies that it warms my cold, black heart Heh But kids take a lot of energy, money and time that I prefer to spend doing other things like traveling and writing, or somet [...]

Gilman really writes terrific, relatable, realistic dialogue, and her plays are always intriguing investigations of real life dilemmas This examination of why people choose to have or NOT have children gets to some core relationships issues with both humor and insight And it has a killer closing coda.


Robert

Gilman s dialogue and the fervor with which her characters conduct themselves are what get you through the play Pretty much everything else just bogs you down The drama is uneventful and not until the very end does one feel like there s a point to any of this.


Lauri

This was a superb play The characters were so real, so true I loved the build up in the Jasper character and that Tom and Karen were than 2 dimensional No one was a bad guy even though some of the stances are not popular Really terrific.


Susie

This is my new favorite play by Rebecca Gilman It didn t have any of the dark, twisted nature I usually enjoy in her plays but instead showed all the dimensions of the arguments for and against having children I found something very touching and sad about it.


Tim Sailer

Rather boring and not theatrical at all.This is kind of like Who s Afraid of Virginia Woolf lite and in 2007.


Andrea Izzy

The play is pretty good, but I like some of her other plays much better.


Sarah

Saw this at the Goodman a few years ago.
