On Thursday, August 11, we are going to the Cumberland County Playhouse to see On Golden Pond.
This heartwarming play tells the love story of Ethel and Norman Thayer, returning to their summer home on Golden Pond for the 48th year. He is a retired professor with heart palpitations and a failing memory – but still as tart-tongued, observant, and eager for life as ever. Ethel is ten years younger and the perfect foil for Norman, delighting in all the small things they cherish and that continue to enrich their long life together. This Tony and Drama Desk award-winning play became the beloved Oscar-winning film of the same name starring Henry Fonda and Katherine Hepburn. Join this spirited couple as they humorously and poignantly navigate their twilight years set against the beautiful backdrop of their treasured Golden Pond. Rated PG – Profanity rating of Moderate but some strong words used.
