Overview


Synopsis

George and Jennie are in love, utterly perfect for each other, and are getting married. There are just a few problems: 1) They’ve only been dating for two weeks. 2) George’s beloved wife of twelve years just passed away. 3) Jennie has just gone through five years of counseling which culminated in a messy divorce. George’s brother, Leo, and Jennie’s friend, Faye, don’t have it any easier. Both of their marriages are in trouble, they’re worried about George and Jennie getting married too quickly, and the two of them are thinking about having an affair with each other. Neil Simon’s semi-autobiographical Chapter Two examines what it means to truly love someone else, and asks whether finding a soulmate can happen more than once in a lifetime.
