The Adding Machine

BY ELMER RICE

DIRECTED BY TED EATON 

Mr. Zero is an accountant at a large, faceless company, where, after 25 years at his job, he discovers that he will be replaced by a machine. After he perpetrates an act of violence, the play follows him through his trial, execution, and afterlife.  Through the satirical storytelling and deep investigation of the human psyche, The Adding Machine asks the question, "What does it mean to be human in a world where we are replaceable?" The play served as a turning point in early 20th century theatre, and established Elmer Rice as one of the best playwrights in the American theatre.
