"Chapter Two" focuses on George Schneider, a writer deeply saddened by the death of his wife of 12 years. His brother Leo urges him start dating again. Leo arranges some blind dates that are disasters. But then he finds Jennie Malone, an actress recently divorced after five years of marriage counseling. George and Jennie fall in love and marry after dating for all of two weeks! This romantic comedy examines what it means to truly love someone else, and asks whether finding a soul mate can happen more than once in a lifetime.

It's whimsical, touching, and always funny.

Director Paul Dorset of Birmingham says, “this is one of Neil Simon’s less heralded shows, but I feel it’s easily one of his best. For a show written over 40 years ago, the themes of love and loss touched on throughout it are timeless. It has been a pleasure working with such a talented cast and crew, and they’ve all made it an easy transition into directing for the first time.”

Remaining show dates for "Chapter Two": March 29, 30, 31 and April 5, 6, 7. All shows begin at 8:00 p.m, except for the Sunday performances on the 31st and 7th which begin at 2:00 p.m. Tickets are $20 each for adults and $18 each for students and seniors.
