3 men, 2 women, 1 boy
Ethel Thayer – at 60-something woman with a zest for life. She’s never let being married into the stodgy world of academia take away her impish joy.
Norman Thayer – retired college professor and full-time curmudgeon who prides himself on treating everyone the same – grumpily – to hide his deep affection for them.
Chelsea – Ethel and Norman’s grown daughter, divorced but contemplating marriage to a dentist with a son. Estranged from her father because she never felt she could live up to his expectations but hungry to have a real relationship with him.
Bill – the dentist wishing to marry Chelsea. Partly intimidated by Norman, partly not willing to play Norman’s games.
Billy – the young son who feels he’s gotten ‘dumped’ on Ethel and Norman for the summer. Too cool for school and ready to give Norman as good as he gets.
Charlie – the local postal worker who has had a crush on Chelsea since they were kids playing together on Golden Pond.
