Patrick and Moira was a Sander Cohen stage production that ran for a time at the Fleet Hall Theater before the downfall of Rapture. Posters for the show can be seen around the upper level of the atrium of Fort Frolic, near the Fleet Hall entrance. It is apparently a musical about the lovers Patrick and Moira, who judging from the poster, are ghosts.

Frank Fontaine, while posing as Atlas, takes the names from the show and uses them as part of his set-up to trick Jack, telling him initially that his goal is to escape Rapture with his wife Moira and his son Patrick. When Jack reaches the bathysphere, Andrew Ryan sends Splicers to supposedly destroy it. It explodes, leaving several unidentified Splicer corpses strewn in the wreckage. Atlas appears to grieve heavily over this, and his goal from that point is to impress Jack to get revenge.

Jack is made to believe that Patrick and Moira died in the bathysphere, apparently as a result of Andrew Ryan's Splicers blowing it up, though this is a trick of Fontaine's. Even though Fontaine had Jack completely under his control, he seemed to enjoy getting Jack to believe that Ryan is evil by conning him. It might not be necessary for Fontaine to do this, when a simple command to kill Ryan would have worked just as well, but giving Jack the impression that Ryan would murder someone's wife and child must have been a tactic to make Fontaine's commands less overt.
