Tony Giardina talks about his new play “The City of Conversation,” along with Jan Maxwell, who stars in it. Maxwell plays political hostess Hester Ferris, a mover and shaker in the nation’s capital, and the play is about the political gains and personal losses that her choices inflict on her family from the waning days of the Carter administration to the beginning of the Obama presidency. “The City of Conversation” is playing at the Mitzi E. Newhouse Theater at Lincoln Center through July 26.
