F*ck Tinder: A Love Story Oct. 11-14

Thu, Oct 11 at 7pm

F*ck Tinder: A Love Story is a comedic storytelling rollercoaster from The Moth champion David Rodwin. After getting held up at gunpoint the night his girlfriend breaks up with him, David moves to San Francisco and goes on dates with 120 women in 2 years -in search of love, but finding everything else. From a first date hook up who unexpectedly brought along her infant, to being taken to a sex party by a woman who’d just told him “I love you,” David brings you on a journey you’re glad he took and you didn’t. Surprisingly, David’s crazy stories grow into a serious spiritual commentary on modern dating, even finding biblical inspiration to cut his heart openand try once more for something substantial. And  that leads to a tale of love that takes a strange twist.
