On Golden Pond is the love story of Ethel and Norman Thayer, who are returning to their summer home on Golden Pond for the forty-eighth year. This touching, funny, and warmly perceptive study of a spirited and lovable elderly couple facing their twilight years received some of the most powerful critical and popular acclaim of any new playwright's debut in Broadway history.
"On Golden Pond is a work of rare simplicity and beauty, and in Thompson our theatre has found a fresh new voice. " -NY Daily News.
"...a rare and memorable theatrical experience..." -Variety.
"What courage it must have taken for Mr. Thompson in the 1970s to write a play with so much affection in it!" -The New Yorker.
