It is a touching, funny, and warmly perceptive story of a spirited and lovable elderly couple facing their twilight years. There is a current running beneath this play that is as strong and poignant as any running beneath any of the great stage classics. It is as present as the play's lake itself, as timeless as the loons. The play brings the audience a humorous heartbreak on every page, some unspoken and never overtly acted. This play brings the story of what truly keeps a family alive.

It is said that the most courageous and selfless act one person can do for another in this life is to simply "rally." To tighten one's belt and take a deep breath, ignoring your own pain, fear, regret and sorrow, and to simply "rally" so that another can find peace, feel comforted, and survive one more moment. Come partake in this play and you will know what we mean.

Deniella Litvak - The Orange Curtain Review

Some plays are designed for the mind. Sometimes it is because the playwright wants to send out a specific message. Other times the goal is to challenge the audience's beliefs or to get us to think about things from a new perspective. Then there are the plays created for the heart where emotions are the story's most important element. On Golden Pond definitely falls into the latter category.
