How long can love last and grow? One heartbeat at a time.
On Golden Pond
by Ernest Thompson
Director: Anne Robinson
Dates: November 23 to December 11, 2022
On Golden Pond is a humourous and heartwarming play about love, reconnection, and family. Come back to 'the pond' one more time and see this American classic.
Norman and Ethel, who have been married for 48 years, enjoy returning to their cottage on the lake's edge every summer. Their daughter, Chelsea,used to enjoy her childhood visits to the cottage, too, but her life has taken many different paths since then. This year she returns to celebrate her father's birthday before making some special plans with her new partner, Bill. Bill's young son, Billy, stays with Norman and Ethel while Bill and Chelsea holiday in Europe.
The turbulent relationship between father and daughter, the generation gap between young and old, and the difficulties of a couple in the twilight years of a long marriage, all combine in a play that effortlessly illustrates the hilarious, heartbreaking, human moments of which life is made.
Come along at 7:30pm on Wednesday 23 November and help us celebrate opening night and enjoy complimentary refreshments before the show.
