According to a press release: “On Golden Pond” is a classic American comedic drama that’s touching, warm and witty. The play made its debut Off- Broadway in 1978.

Snapshot: Retired couple Ethel and Norman Thayer are spending their 48th summer at their vacation home on Golden Pond, in the woods of Maine. When their daughter Chelsea visits for Norman’s 80th birthday, bringing her boyfriend Bill and Bill’s teenage son, Billy Jr., combining are 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. The blend illustrates the hilarious, heartbreaking, human moments of which life is made.
