CASTLE HILL PLAYERS PRESENT ‘ON GOLDEN POND’ @ THE PAVILION THEATRE

ON GOLDEN POND  is the classic award winning 1979 play by Ernest Thompson which was later adapted into the memorable 1981 motion picture starring Henry Fonda and Katherine Hepburn. This play is part of a very special season for Castle Hill Players as they celebrate their 50th anniversary season.

Tasmanian born playwright Tom Holloway was just 17 years old when the news of the Port Arthur massacre came through on the radio on the 28th April, 1996. He was delivering pizza at the time. He promptly put an end to his shift.

The events stirred up a lot of thoughts and feelings within him. A playwright by nature, his way of integrating and responding to these tragic events was to start working on  a play about these tragic events. The result is his play  BEYOND THE NECK (2005).
