Both lighthearted and deeply moving, playwright Ernest Thompson’s On Golden Pond is the story of a retired professor and his wife whose annual trip to the solitude of their summer vacation home is interrupted when their adult daughter Chelsea arrives with her fiancé and his teenaged son, Billy. After leaving Billy behind to bond with her father, Chelsea returns, attempting to repair the long-strained relationship with her aging dad before it's too late. Something deep and profound resonates through the events that unfold in this American masterpiece.
“It alternates with such shrewdness between humor and heartbreak that it comes to feel as real and full as life itself.” -The Boston Globe “…a rare and memorable theatrical experience…” -Variety
“An endearing hymn to old age; warm, engaging, easy-going, sometimes funny, often quite touching.” -Rex Reed
