How does a computer scientist hook up with a molecular biologist? He blinds her with science, of course. When Elliot builds a computer program to help Molly with her research project, the variables in their evolving relationship shift as rapidly as the terms of their experiment. This deft and imaginative new ROM-comedy shows that even the most sophisticated algorithm may freeze in the face of life's infinite possibilities.

"Moses has Aaron Sorkin's ear, and his gift for sorting Big Ideas into witty epigrams and human scale exchanges. A brash and brainy but ultimately honest and body-temperature portrait. It's about faith and data in an OK Cupid world." - New York Magazine

"Moses subverts stereotypes. Dramatically compelling and refreshingly hilarious. " - LA Weekly

"Avoids tired stereotypes and offers new insight on love and connection; his fully fleshed-out characters bring home the difficulties in store as people who live in their heads act with their hearts. Sweet and universal. Kudos to Moses." - New City Chicago
