PRICE: $55 Members and Non-members
EVENT TYPE: Theater Matinee
Join WNDC members and guests for a matinee performance of Arena Stage’s new play, The City of Conversation, at a special group rate. Georgetown hostess Hester Ferris (portrayed by Margaret Colin from Independence Day, Gossip Girl, and As the World Turns) 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.
