Hampton Theatre Company Presents On Golden Pond
January 10–13, times vary
Ernest Thompson’s play, first produced Off-Off-Broadway in 1978, went on to a wildly successful Broadway run the following year. Critics praised it’s simplicity, beauty and laugh out loud humor. Thompson then adapted the script for film in 1981, winning the Oscar for Best Adapted Screenplay and two more Oscars for Best Lead Actor (Henry Fonda) and Actress (Katharine Hepburn).
The story focuses on Ethel and Norman Thayer, who are spending their 48th summer together at a lakeside cottage in Maine. Norman, now a gruff 80-year-old, is fighting heart palpitations and a failing memory, while his wife strives to keep his spirits up despite his unfortunate health. On Golden Pond runs at the Quogue Community Hall through January 27, with shows on Thursdays and Fridays at 7 p.m., Saturdays at 8 p.m. and Sundays at 2:30 p.m. Tickets are $10–$30.
