PATTERN OF LIFE by Walt McGough
- 8:00 pm on Friday, June 27, 2014
New Repertory Theatre and Boston Center for American Performance present the Next Rep World Premiere of Walt McGough's PATTERN OF LIFE, directed by Bridget Kathleen O’Leary, June 14-29. 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. Walt McGough is a Boston-based playwright (by way of Pittsburgh and Chicago), and a current Playwriting Fellow at the Huntington Theatre Company. Tickets: $30 General Admission | $15 CFA Membership and New Repertory Theatre Subscribers. Box Office: 617-933-8600
