In the absurdist play The Adding Machine, the phrase "from zero to hero" takes on a whole new meaning. Called "a landmark of American Expressionism" by Playbill, this prescient show takes us to a world familiar to fans of George Orwell's 1984, Ridley Scott's Blade Runner or Terry Gilliam's Brazil. After a lifetime on the job, Zero -- an accountant for a large, faceless company -- discovers that he's being replaced by a machine. Overcome with anger, he snaps and commits a violent crime. Elmer Rice's classic drama then follows Zero through his arrest, trial, execution ... and on into the afterlife. Take in this evocative exploration of anxieties (which have only compounded and complicated since it was first written in 1923) at New York's West End Theater in St. Paul and St. Andrew United Methodist Church.
