The Adding Machine

The Adding Machine by Elmer Rice

Directed by Brook Davis

February 16-17 & 22-24 at 7:30 PM

February 18 & 25 at 2:00 PM

Tedford Stage, Scales Fine Arts Center

“Rice's play has left its impact on a wide variety of works, from Chaplin's Modern Times to Tony Kushner's Angels in America. But what is striking is the bilious inclusiveness of its attack on a machine-driven society that not only exploits its workers, but robs them of their souls." - The Guardian

Mr. Zero is replaced by an adding machine after 25 years on the job.  There's a murder trial, the afterlife, and machines . . .machines . . .machines everywhere.  Join us on our highly stylized journey as we celebrate Elmer Rice's influential expressionistic masterpiece and ponder what it means to be human.
