Writer finally helms his Oscar winner on NH stage
Thompson said he wrote the play “so minimalist that each person in the audience gets to fill in and create his or her own Golden Pond.”
“It seems so cold, but right from the start it really worked,” Wells said. “Friends who’ve seen us in a couple of productions of it say it’s the best one.”
“He brings an understanding of his work,” she said. “I think too, because he’s older, he’s gotten to know his characters a little better.”
Thompson moved from Los Angeles to New Hampshire with his young family 21 years ago, settling not far from where the movie version of “On Golden Pond” was filmed.
Thompson’s introduction of the play is aptly themed, “Back Where it All Began.”
“When people see this play they’re not just seeing a very good production of “On Golden Pond,” they’re seeing Ernest Thompson’s production of it,” he said. “People in New Hampshire have a real sense of private ownership of `On Golden Pond.’”
After the play, patrons can chat with Thompson and take photographs with his Oscar which, he says, “shamelessly hangs out at the kiosk.”
