Playwright Madeline George wants her script to be a tour de force, along with a tour of four eras, each a semi-clone of the others. So she time-jumps from Sherlock Holme's Watson to the supercomputer (named Watson) that beat two past champions on Jeopardy. Along the way the play wonders what an ideal companion would be like, and the effects of the Technological Singularity looming in our future. The play has some rich ideas and clashes of ideas, but was not written for actors. Moxie's cast (Jo Anne Glover, Eddie Yaroch, Justin Lang), directed by guru Delicia Turner Sonnenberg, makes for a game, often funny show, albeit one that do go on. Worth a try.
