Breakdown


ADDING MACHINE: A MUSICAL

Based on the Play by Elmer Rice

Book and Lyrics by Joshua Schmidt and Jason Loewith

Music by Joshua Schmidt

Directed by Geoff Button

Mr. Zero – 30s-50s, Everyman. A seemingly average middle aged guy with a surprising amount of rage under the surface.

Mrs. Zero – 30s-50s, Shrill and abrasive. Mr. Zero’s unhappy and frustrated wife.

Daisy Devore – 20s-50s, Meek and melancholy. Mr. Zero’s coworker with a secret, unrequited crush on him.

Shrdlu – 20s-30s, Pious and sanctimonious. Mr. Zero’s cellmate, driven to violence by forces inside him he doesn’t understand.

Boss/Fixer/Charles – 30s-50s, high status and in control. Comfortably and blithely unsympathetic to the struggles of the common man.
