This semi-autobiographical romantic comedy from Neil Simon (Barefoot in the Park, The Odd Couple) tells the story of George Schneider, a recently widowed middle-aged writer who’s still coping with his wife’s untimely passing. After trying, and failing, to get back on the dating scene, his brother Leo introduces him to soap opera actress Jennie Malone, who’s just ended her six-year marriage to a football player. The sparks fly, but there are plenty of emotional obstacles to overcome as George and Jennie try to start Chapter Two of their lives. Ripe with Simon’s trademark witty dialogue and heart-tugging scenarios, Chapter Two scored a Tony Award nomination for Best Play upon it’s debut in 1978, and has endeared for nearly four decades, spawning a hit film adaptation starring James Caan and even inspiring the plot of a Seinfeld episode.
Unity Theatre has always maintained a close connection to downtown Brenham's history, even as it reinvents its present. Nowhere is that more evident than the company's choice of venues. The Brenham National Bank lobby served as Unity's first stage back in 1995 (a former freight depot served as its box office) until the company renovated a former warehouse into a professional theatrical venue. With it came enough space to produce four Main Stage productions, two studio productions, a summer family musical, and two concerts each season. That output has attracted actors, directors, designers and technicians from throughout the country, treating the region to the most rewarding theatrical experience possible. Unity Theatre cultivates homegrown talent, however, with workshops and classes.
