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 open and try once more for something substantial. And that leads to a tale of love that takes a strange twist.

“A master storyteller” – Theatre Eddys
“A phenomenal writer” – Stage And Cinema
“There are very few edgy storytellers with his gifts out there right now… Masters of the form like Spalding Gray and Eric Bogosian... David Rodwin does deserve to be mentioned in such company.” – Better Lemons

“F*ck Tinder is one of the best shows I’ve seen… It’s as though he has nailed himself to the post-modern sex & love cross and is suffering for our sins.” - Bill Ratner, 8-time The Moth StorySLAM winner
