Season 2017

On Golden Pond

by Ernest Thompson

"Listen to me, mister. You're my knight in shining armor. Don't you forget it!"

Norman and Ethel Thayerare a couple in their twilight years, and the in infirmities of age threaten their 48th summer on Golden Pond. When their semi-estranged daughter comes for a visit with a boy-friend and a smart-mouthed 13-year-old boy in tow, tension is in the air. While On Golden Pond is loaded with  humerous one-liners and witty sarcasm, it's also an old fashioned love story that explores the often turbulent relationship between the daughter and her father growing up, the difficulties faced by a couple in the twilight years of a long marriage, and burying the hatchet in order to pursue a fresh start
