About The City of Conversation

It’s 1979, and Washington, D.C. socialite Hester Ferris is notorious for her posh dinner parties that can change the course of politics. But when her son turns up with an ambitious girlfriend and a newly minted political agenda, it ignites a family divide that spans 30 years and six presidential administrations. A timely and moving look at a family forced to choose between defending opposing political views and keeping their family together.

The season continues with The City of Conversation by Anthony Giardina, nominated for the 2014-15 Outer critics Circle and Drama Desk awards for Best Play. Hailed as “uncannily of the moment” by the LA Times, The City of Conversation explores family politics by looking at a family in politics.
