40 million Americans have tried online dating. #DateMe: An OkCupid Experiment is the outrageous, TRUE story of one. Robyn Lynne Norris (the show's creator and writer) is unlucky in love but determined to understand it better, so she logs on to the world's most popular dating site: OkCupid. Creating 38 "undateable" profiles as an interactive scientific investigation into online dating, Robyn unwittingly sets in motion the social experiment of our generation. Part improv, part sketch comedy and entirely hilarious, Robyn makes one conclusive result: there's no algorithm for love. The production will open at an Off-Broadway theater in the 2018/2019 season.
