On Golden Pond
By Ernest Thompson
Starring David Durham & Karen Fitzgerald (formerly Karen Abrami) as Norman and Ethel Thayer
With Academy Award winning serving Ernest Thompson as Production Consultant!
Adapted into the oscar winning movie of the same name, On Golden Pond is one of the most produced plays of modern times. The story follows Norman and Ethel, returning to their beloved cottage for their 48th summer. Intimations of mortality are in the air, as are a suggestion of senility and a growing sense of urgency for Norman to make peace with his long-estranged daughter. When she arrives with her new beau and his teenage son, Norman’s unfailingly mordant humor, and his spirits, take a turn for the better.
This deeply moving production is being produced with Ernest Thompson himself as production consultant. And after the 2:00pm Sunday Jan. 15th matinee performance, Ernest will be hosting a free post-show Q & A session, as well as book signing for his debut novel “The Book of Maps”.
This special event with Mr. Thompson is being presented in conjunction with River Run Bookstore in Portsmouth. Copies of “The Book of Maps” book will be available for purchase!
