Synopsis

Paradise syndrome.

Peter has everything. He’s very comfortable. Life is good. He has a beautiful apartment, a beautiful lifestyle and a beautiful girlfriend called Jenny. So why is he so tired? Why are his limbs so heavy? Isn’t he happy? And how’s Jenny? Is she happy? And what’s ‘happy’ anyway? When you talk about being ‘happy’, does that mean you’re unhappy already? That’s Jenny’s question, and why’s Peter asleep again? Surely this part of life is better than this.

Hello Rachael. No wait, who’s Rachael?

Is Rachael, what a man who has everything, really wants? Look out Jenny! Here comes Rachael. This will be hard to stop, even if everyone tells you there’s nothing happening and that’s what you decide to believe. She’s a good friend. Surely she wouldn’t do this. Surely she just understands that Peter is just feeling tired and soon everything will be better again. No. Goodbye Jenny. Hello Rachael. And are you awake yet Peter? You are? Good! But what’s wrong? Is being with someone with a beautiful apartment, beautiful lifestyle and a beautiful boyfriend not what you thought? Have you become the minor part in the relationship, just like Jenny was in yours? Does every relationship have a major and a minor? Are we all saying to our new partners what our ex partners said to us? Are we becoming wiser? Or prolonging and avoidable agony? What happens next?

‘Patterns’ is a play about you, your partner, your ex partner and all the other couples you know?
