2018 SEASON 4

One Act Plays

On Golden Pond is a classic American comedy/ drama that's every bit as touching, warm, and witty today as when it debuted on Broadway in 1979. Retired couple Ethel and Norman Thayer spend every summer at their home on Golden Pond. This year, their adult daughter visits, bringing along her 13-year-old son. The turbulent relationship between father and daughter, the generation gap between young and old, and the difficulties facing a couple in the twilight years of a long marriage, all combine in a play that gives us unique insight into the modern American family.

See what people said about On Golden Pond:

"This is a beautifully written, well-crafted play that has been extremely well executed by director Roderick Chappel and his team of cast members and creatives. It isn’t often that I get emotional watching a play, but I fought back joyful tears tonight as I watched the final scene unfold. Brian Edmond and Katie Hall are absorbing to watch, and they each gave standout performances tonight. They were in good company, too - with Seth Kannof, Peta Owen, Peter Gallagher and Leigh Harrison all finding beautiful subtleties in the performance of their characters. As a stage manager, Alison Louise Jones has done an amazing job of running the show and ensuring that scene transitions are simple but effective.

Congratulations to the cast and crew of On Golden Pond. You should all be very proud of what you have created."
