New Repertory Theatre and Boston Center for American Performance present
The Next Rep Premiere of
Pattern of Life
By Walt McGough
Directed by Bridget Kathleen O’Leary
June 14-28, 2014
Boston University Theatre, Lane-Comley Studio 210

The mistaken death of a young boy links two men thousands of miles apart. The first, a drone pilot, tries to fight through a haze of guilt and anxiety, and find something human to hold on to. The second, a Pakistani villager, struggles to comprehend the tragedy, and put a face on a faceless enemy. A series of shared dreams lets them begin to see one another, and explore questions of revenge, justice and connection in a time of perpetual warfare.
