Michael and Eleanor have lived their lives hidden away from the norms of the modern world in service to the Catholic Church. By leaving their order and getting married they must now adjust to a new, shared life away from all they have ever known.
The play is about their battle to overcome the emotional restraints the vows of loyalty and chastity taken years ago placed on them as they contend with their newfound desires and the awkwardness of love when the rules are suddenly changed.
God Bless Our Love is the funny and romantic story of two people coming to terms with falling in love for the first time in middle age and in the most extraordinary circumstances.
