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.

"Four stars. Nerd-sweet, incredibly seductive, and wonderfully generous." - Time Out New York

"A funny, ridiculously smart new play. I haven't seen another play recently that so perfectly captured love — hot-blooded, fearless, fickle — at this stage of life." - Bloomberg News

"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

"Barbed, seductive, and heartbreaking." - New York Press

"Moses writes the way young people think, with an unexpectedly fine ear for contempo sexual politics' dizzying conversational loop." - Variety

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

"Highly recommended. All but unbeatable and arguably Moses' best play to date. Completeness is the real deal." - Chicago Sun-Times

"Very enjoyable. Celebrates the seductive power of smarts." - Chicago Tribune

"Four stars. Terrific. If you don't find math and science sexy, Completeness might change your mind." - Time Out Chicago

"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

"A true thinking nerds romantic comedy. Fearless, pointed, frequently funny, and utterly compelling. An often brilliant synthesis of a show." - Chicago Theatre Beat

Completeness was originally commissioned by the Manhattan Theatre Club. The play was first presented by South Coast Repertory in Costa Mesa, California, on April 17, 2011. The play was first presented Off Broadway by Playwrights Horizons in New York City on August 19, 2011. Both productions were directed by Pam MacKinnon.
