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 still
as tart-tongued, 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 enriched
and continue to enrich their 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 still awaits.
