THE STORY: This is the love story of Ethel and Norman Thayer, who are returning to their summer home on Golden Pond for the forty-eighth year. He is a retired professor, nearing eighty, with heart palpitations and a failing memory—but still as tart-tongued, observant and eager for life as ever. Ethel, ten years younger, and the perfect foil for Norman, delights in all the small things that have enriched and continue to enrich their long life together. They are visited by their divorced, middle-aged daughter and her dentist fiancé, who then leave his teenage son behind for the summer. The boy quickly becomes the "grandchild" the elderly couple have longed for. In the final, deeply moving moments of the play, Norman and Ethel are brought even closer together. Time, they know, is now against them, but the years have been good and, perhaps, another summer on Golden Pond still awaits. Presented to great critical and popular acclaim first off then on Broadway, this touching, funny and warmly perceptive study of a spirited and lovable elderly couple facing their twilight years introduced a significant playwright to our theatre. “ON GOLDEN POND is a work of rare simplicity and beauty, and in Thompson our theatre has found a fresh new voice.” —NY Daily News. “…a rare and memorable theatrical experience…” —Variety. “What courage it must have taken for Mr. Thompson in the 1970s to write a play with so much affection in it!” —The New Yorker.

On Golden Pond is presented by special arrangement with Dramatists Play Service, Inc., New York.
