The main character, Michael, is older now and has a family, but an event happens that brings Michaels integrity into question.

The obsessive Jackie is keen to renew her long-running incestuous affair with Marty, which is fine by the mother, who's still lamenting her husband's desertion, and by puppyish younger brother Anthony who immediately desires Lesly. The resulting battle over Marty becomes something of a class struggle between the Pascals' poetic insanity and Lesly's plebian pragmatism

What is Love?

Michael Kelly continues his explorations into love, race and how it relates to spirituality in today's society with this critical look at relationships and marriage.

"Who Has Your Attention?" and now "What is Love."
A married couple, like most others find themselves being pulled apart by divisive friends and relatives. In any marriage are the fights truly resolved? Can you trust the one you are with? How do you know if this is really the "right one" Trust has a lot to do with a marriage, but how can you give that trust to someone who might not be who you think they are. This play speaks to anyone who has had to take a risk and go all in ... or get out.

Now in his forties, as the play opens, Daniel looks back on his years as a successful priest and a devoted husband and father; but the abandoned, illegitimate son, now in his twenties, learns of the desertion and the deception, and threatens to expose the ugly truth that would destroy Daniel's family, his ministry, and his image as a man of God.
