On Golden Pond is a humorous and touching story of love that is both endearing and enduring. It gives us hope that it is never too late to connect with our family. On Golden Pond has won numerous awards since its debut off Broadway in 1978, including several Tonys for the stage version, and Oscars and Golden Globes for the 1981 screen adaptation. It is sweet and understated and says much about love, the aging process, and the generation gap. The touching drama by Ernest Thompson is the love story of Ethel and Norman Thayer, who are returning to their summer home on Golden Pond for their 48th year. Norman is an elderly retired professor with heart palpitations and a failing memory–but still tart-tongued and observant as ever. Wife Ethel is 10 years younger and the perfect foil for Norman. She delights in all the small things that have enriched and continue to enrich their long life together.
