The UK premiere from 2016!
Ever feel like killing your boss?
After 25 long years spent adding figures in the same soul-crushing job, Mr Zero suddenly finds himself replaced by a machine. For the first time in his life, Zero takes his destiny into his own hands. The consequences set him on a path through this world and beyond, offering him one last chance for love, life and redemption.
Take an extraordinary journey with Mr Zero in this stirring and hilariously dark anti-musical as it asks us to consider the true price of a human soul, told through Joshua Schmidt’s haunting score, inspired by gospel, opera, jazz and rock and roll.
WARNING: Adding Machine: A Musical is based on the 1923 play Adding Machine by Elmer Rice. As an indictment and examination of white privilege, it contains racist language that may cause offence.
Age recommendation: 12+
