This play is filled with sharp-witted one-liners that keep the audience laughing throughout, the El Paso Playhouses' production of "On Golden Pond" is both deep and delightful.

From the moment Norman Thayer (Lamont Cain) walks onstage with his sweater buttoned askew, making morbidly hilarious predictions of his own death, viewers are enamored with him.

No less Norman's wife Ethel (Leslie Horvath) imbues Ethel with unlimited energy and a sweetly affectionate tolerance of Norman's antics.

The 1981 movie "On Golden Pond," starring Hollywood legends Henry Fonda and Katherine Hepburn and Fonda's daughter Jane, won Academy Awards for both Katherine Hepburn, as well as best screenplay, adapted for the movie by the play's original writer, Ernest Thompson.  The movie was nominated in every other category.

Thompson's play appeared in 1979 on Broadway, winning Frances Sternhagen a Tony Award for best actress as well as numerous Drama Desk and other awards.
