The critically acclaimed movie On Golden Pond is also a stage play, and is coming to Allen Contemporary Theatre! On Golden Pond tells the love story of Ethel and Norman Thayer, who are returning to their summer home on Golden Pond for the forty-eighth year. He is a retired professor, nearing eighty, with heart palpitations and a failing memory - but still as tart-tongued, observant and eager for life as ever. Ethel, ten years younger, and the perfect foil for Norman, delights in all the small things that have enriched and continue to enrich their long life together. In the end, as the summer wanes, so does their brief idyll. Time, they know, is now against them, but the years have been good and, perhaps, another summer on Golden Pond still awaits.
On Golden Pond runs October 6-22, 2023 on Fri/Sat at 8 PM and Sundays at 3 PM. Tickets are on sale at www.AllenContemporaryTheatre.net/tickets
