A new play by Anthony Giardina

 

In 1979, Washington D.C. was a place where people actually talked to each other...where adversaries fought it out on the Senate floor and then smoothed it out over drinks and hors d'oeuvres. But it was all about to change.

 

In this play spanning 30 years and six presidential administrations, Hester Ferris is the savvy and elegant doyenne of Georgetown whose dinner parties are legendary with their influence of politics. But when her beloved son suddenly turns up with an ambitious Reaganite girlfriend and a shocking new conservative world view, Hester must choose between preserving her family and defending the causes she's spent her whole life fighting for.
