Ernest Thompson - Beyond Golden Pond




Above: Photo by PT Sullivan Ernest Thompson has been hosting a playwright workshop near his home in the Lakes Region for a decade or so, while writing and directing some of the most compelling and controversial theatre anywhere. His most recent play, “Ax of Love,” is a touchingly brutal look at how love survives whatever life throws at it. It premiered at Portsmouth’s West End Studio Theater and will appear in Boston and, most likely, New York next year. His latest movie, “The Love Line,” is shooting in Providence and his next, “Elysian Farm,” will be produced and filmed in New Hampshire. Oh, and his little N.H.-based play that went on to win him an Oscar, “On Golden Pond,” is still one of the most-staged theatrical productions ever.
