Presented to great critical and popular acclaim first off then on Broadway, this touching, funny and warmly perceptive study of a spirited and lovable elderly couple facing their twilight years introduced a significant playwright to our theatre. "ON GOLDEN POND is a work of rare simplicity and beauty, and in Thompson our theatre has found a fresh new voice." —NY Daily News. "…a rare and memorable theatrical experience…" —Variety. "What courage it must have taken for Mr. Thompson in the 1970s to write a play with so much affection in it!" —The New Yorker.

The acclaimed 1982 movie starring Katherine Hepburn and real-life father and daughter Henry Fonda and Jane Fonda, won Oscars for Best Actor (Henry Fonda), Best Actress (Katherine Hepburn) and Best Screenplay Based on Material From Another Medium (Ernest Thompson).
