Norman and Ethel Thayer have spent 45 summers at their cabin on Golden Pond. This summer promises to be much the same, but there are changes in the offing. Norman is having trouble remembering names and places, a struggle Ethel realizes but refuses to dwell on. Estranged daughter, Chelsea, arrives with a new boyfriend and his son in tow, hoping to leave the boy with her parents while she and Bill Sr. go to Europe. The stage is set for the airing of long-harbored regrets and rediscovered bonds. A strong family drama laced with love and humor, On Golden Pond reminds us that at any time of life, there is the possibility for love, joy, and new beginnings.
(ages are character ages, as defined by the author in the script):
Norman Thayer (late 70’s)- Former college professor, still sharp and a little scary, but beginning to feel the cold breath of dementia on the back of his neck and fighting it.
Ethel Thayer (late 60’s)-Norman’s wife. Smart, feisty, Norman’s better half in every way. They are soulmates.
Chelsea Thayer Wayne (42)-Their daughter, still working thru a pile of childhood issues and frustration over never quite living up to Norman’s expectations.
Charlie Martin (44)-Friendly, simple local guy, and mailman for the lake. Never quite outgrew his crush on Chelsea
Bill Ray (40’s)-Chelsea’s new friend. A smart, decent guy, a little nervous about meeting Norman, but okay once he loosens up.
Billy Ray (14)-Bills son. Old enough to know the score, but still young enough to appreciate the attention of adults. He and Norman share a smart-aleck attitude toward life.
