The plot focuses on ageing couple Ethel and Norman Thayer, who spend each summer at their home on a lake called Golden Pond. During the year the story takes place, they are visited by daughter Chelsea with her fiancè and his son in tow. The play explores, with both humour and pathos, 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. The first Broadway production was in 1979, and a Broadway revival took place in 2005. It has won many awards including several Drama Desk Awards and two Tony's (for the revivals). The play was famously adapted for the screen in 1981 for a film with Henry Fonda, Katharine Hepburn and Jane Fonda.
