On Golden Pond

On Golden Pond by Ernest Thompson Directed by Brent Stringfield

Retired Couple Ethel and Norman Thayer are spending their 48th summer at their vacation home on Golden Pond when their daughter, Chelsea, visits for Norman’s 80th birthday. She brings with her her boyfriend Bill and Bill’s teenage son, Billy. The whole family must come to grips with Norman and Chelsea’s mutual bitterness, while Norman blossoms with his chance to mentor young Billy. The turbulent relationship between father and daughter, the generation gap between young and old, and the difficulties of a couple in the twilight years of a long marriage, all combine in a play that effortlessly illustrates the hilarious, heartbreaking, human moments of which life is made.
