The Adding Machine

Home   /   The Adding Machine

by Elmer Rice

This classic 1923 Expressionist play focuses on how an accountant, Mr. Zero, reacts to being replaced by an adding machine after 25 years on the job.

The play is a take-down of capitalist mythology and how it both reduces people to numbers and breeds hate against “the other.”
