This is 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 with a failing memory—but still as tart-tongued, as ever. Ethel, ten years younger, delights in all the small things that have enriched their life together. They are visited by their daughter and her fiancé, who then go off to Europe, leaving his teenage son behind for the summer. The boy quickly becomes the "grandchild" the elderly couple have longed for, even as he proves to be a handful. In the end Norman, Ethel and the audience will hope that perhaps another summer on Golden Pond still awaits. “…. a rare and memorable theatrical experience…” -Variety. 2005 Tony Award for Best Revival of a Play.
