On Golden Pond is a play by Ernest Thompson. It focuses on an aging couple who spend each summer at their home on Golden Pond. This year they are
visited by daughter, Chelsea and her fiance with his son in tow. The play explores the often
turbulent relationship the young woman shared with her father growing up, and the difficulties faced
by a couple in the twilight years of a long marriage.
After five previews, the play opened in 1979 at the New Apollo Theatre, where it ran for 126 performances. After a summer break, it reopened at the Century Theatre where it ran an additional 256 performances.
