The City of Conversation

By Anthony Giardina
In the Fichandler Stage
January 29 – March 6, 2016

Politics and family make for polarizing bedfellows in this juicy new play and recent Off-Broadway triumph. Georgetown hostess, Hester Ferris, runs in an elite circle, opening her home for political foes to lay down arms and raise a glass. When her son’s formidable, conservative wife comes on the scene, the parlor pleasantries of D.C.’s past descend into entrenched posturing and an ultimatum that could implode the family. Follow the Ferris clan from the end of Carter’s presidency through the Reagan era and into Obama’s game-changing inauguration in this “smart, literate and funny” (New York Times) inside look at the theater of politics and the politics of conversation. Margaret Colin (Gossip Girl) makes her Arena Stage debut.
