On Golden Pond is a warm, witty and moving play. Ethel and Norman Thayer come to spend summer – as for years they have spent every summer – in their rural retreat on the edge of Golden Pond, which is a lake in the forests of rural Maine. Norman is struggling with the onset of old age, and Ethel is starting to struggle with Norman. Unexpectedly their daughter Chelsea, who has kept away for many years because of her relationship with Norman, visits her parents. She brings her new boyfriend Bill and Bill’s teenage son Billy. Chelsea and Bill go on holiday to Europe and leave Billy with Ethel and Norman. Billy and Noman form a mutually supportive relationship which provides a new purpose to Norman’s life.

Role # 1 Norman Thayer Jr.
Seeking 1 talent(s) for this role

Retired English professor. Youthful for his age but showing signs of slowing down; a touch of arthritis, heart palpitations and a declining memory. He can be a charming gentleman one minute and a cantankerous curmudgeon the next. He has a dry sharp wit and frequently weaves confusing mental circles around others in a game of one-upmanship. He is very much in love with Ethel.

Role # 2 Ethel Thayer

Ethel is a spritely, active woman who loves her husband completely and who is in love with simply being alive. She is energetic and has an inner and outer strength. She has aged extremely well. She doesn't fall prey to Norman's games and knows how to manage Norman's moods and run interference when he is less than charming with others.
