Ethel and Norman Thayer have spent the past 48 summers in their lake house on Golden Pond. However, this year—the year Norman turns 80—the married couple begins to feel strains brought on by old age. Generations collide when the couple’s grown daughter—Chelsea, who had a tumultuous relationship with her father—visits with her boyfriend and his 13-year-old son. Written by Ernest Thompson, this heartfelt play explores the idea of aging and shows both the positive and negative implications of growing older. Fri-Sat 7:30 p.m.; Sun 2 p.m.
