ON GOLDEN POND, which was presented on Broadway years before the famous movie, is considered an American classic. Set in a cabin by a lake (Golden Pond) in the state of Maine, the story of an aging couple confronted by deep family strife and their undying love even in the face of their mortality is a
humorous and warm look at life, forgiveness, hope and acceptance.
Lovable curmudgeon Norman Thayer is as tart-tongued as ever. His spirited wife, Ethel, delights in all the small things that have enriched their lives. Together, they are returning to their summer home on the lake for the forty-eighth year and are soon visited by their adult daughter, her uptight fiancé, and his rebellious teenage son. ON GOLDEN POND is a heartwarming story about revisiting the past and forging new bonds across generations. This modern classic remains an inspiring celebration of the universal challenges we all face, and the ultimate triumphs of life, love, and family.
