Prince Edward Community Theatre Presents:
On Golden Pond by Ernest Thompson
A classic comedic drama that's every bit as touching, warm, and witty today as when it debuted off-Broadway in 1978. Retired couple Ethel and Norman Thayer (Colleen Simm & Pat Larkin) are spending their 48th summer at their summer home on Golden Pond, in the woods of Maine. Their delightful routine--fishing, picking strawberries, enjoying old mementos, listening to the loons call--is given a bitterly comedic edge by Norman’s faililng memory and cantankerously morbid statements. They are visited by their daughter Chelsea (Elizabeth Simpson) for Norman’s 80th birthday, bringing her new dentist finance Bill (Adam McGowan) and Bill’s teenage son, Billy Jr. (Haimish Hunter). Charlie Martin (Tom Higginbottom) the local delivery-by-boat mailman, Charlie a long-time family friend. Still single, he has had a life-long crush on Chelsea. The whole family must come to grips with Norman and Chelsea’s ongoing estangement, while Norman blossoms with his chance to mentor young Billy. 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, all combine in a play that effortlessly illustrates the hilarious, heartbreaking, human moments of which life is made.
