Elliot creates a computer algorithm to help Molly with her molecular biology research, and the variables in their evolving relationship shift as rapidly as the terms of their experiment.

 

“Itamar Moses is one of my favorite playwrights working today,” says director Daniel O’Neil. “His writing is so smart, and he has such an understanding of the idiosyncrasies of the way people talk and think.” Completeness marks the third time O’Neil has directed work by Moses, after having helmed 2012’s Love/Stories. “This play takes these ideas in science, abstract to most of us in theatre, and relates them so beautifully to the way we move through our lives and navigate romance,” he continues. “And it helps that it’s hilarious.”

 

Completeness was commissioned by the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation, and is an example of the foundation’s efforts to use art to improve the public’s understanding of science and technology. In addition to the financial support, “having it was one of the most helpful things for getting the science right,” noted Itamar Moses. The scientists and the selection panel helped him nail the way computer science and molecular biology grad students would speak to each other. “They were able to tell me ‘That’s not true’ or ‘That problem she claimed to be working on has already been solved.

 

” Time Out NY calls Completeness “incredibly seductive,” and Bloomberg News says it’s “a funny, ridiculously smart new play.”

 

"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
