Run Dates

April 4-7, 11-18

Description

This is the love story of Ethel and Norman Thayer, who are returning to their summer home on Golden Pond for the forty-eighth year. He is a retired professor, nearing eighty, with heart palpitations and a failing memory – but sill as tart-tonged, observant and eager for life as ever. Ethel, ten years younger and the perfect foil for Norman, delights in all the small things that have encircled and continue to enrich long 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 – and slang – in return. In the end, as the summer wanes, so does their brief idyll, and in the final, deeply moving moments of the play, Norman and Ethel are brought even closer together by the incidence of a mild heart attack. Time, they know, is now against them, but the years have been good and, perhaps, another summer on Golden Pond awaits.

Info

Comedy by Noel Coward

Directed by Tom Morrow

Run dates: May 30-June 2 & June 6-9, 2019

Description

A smash comedy hit on London and Broadway stages, this much-revived Noel Coward classic offers up fussy novelist Charles Condomine, re-married but haunted – literally – by the ghost of his late first wife. The clever and insistent Elvira has been called up by a flamboyant and eccentric medium, Madame Arcati, during a seance. In this clash of big personalities (both worldly and un-), Charles must navigate his way between two wives, creating many comical situations to a quite unexpected resolution.
