“The Adding Machine” is the intense but comical tale of “Mr. Zero,” a henpecked, everyman accountant who, after 25 years at his job, is replaced by an automated calculator on the day he is expected to receive a raise. The replacement sends him over the edge and into an act of bloody retribution. The show follows his journey from trial to execution and, eventually, to the afterlife.
