On Golden Pond

On Golden Pond, written by Ernest Thompson at The Priory Theatre, Kenilworth, from 12 - 20 April 2024. Directed by John Evans.



Norman and Ethel Thayer return to their summer home on Golden Pond for the 44th year. He is a retired professor, nearing eighty, with heart palpitations and a failing memory, but still as sharp-tongued, observant and eager for life as ever. Ethel, ten years younger and the perfect foil for Norman, delights in all the small things which have enriched and continue to enrich their life together.

They are visited by their divorced, middle-aged daughter and her dentist 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 and as Norman revels in taking his ward fishing and thrusting good books at him, he also learns some lessons about modern teenage awareness in return.
