WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Every summer Norman Thayer and his wife Ethel return to their house on Golden Pond in Maine. Faces come and go - much like the loons and their chicks out on the lake - but the rhythm of life remains the same. When estranged daughter Chelsea turns up for Norman s 80th birthday, however, things look set to change. Chelsea and partner Bill are heading for Europe and want to leave behind Billy, Bill s 13 year-old son. In the weeks that follow, an unlikely, yet charming, friendship forms between the acid-witted Norman and street-wise Billy, but as the time comes for Billy to leave Golden Pond some old differences have yet to be resolved... This poignant and witty play - made famous by the film starring Jane and Henry Fonda - captures the simplicity of life on Golden Pond. Enter a world where second childhoods and second chances are still possible!
