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, five-time Tony® nominee JAN MAXWELL plays savvy and elegant Hester Ferris, the doyenne of Georgetown dinner parties whose influence in liberal politics is legendary. 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.

Don't miss this captivating, intimate and searing new family drama about just how deeply personal politics can be.
