Ever feel like killing your boss? After 25 long years spent adding figures in the same soul-crushing job, Mr Zero suddenly finds himself replaced by a machine. For the first time in his life, Zero takes his destiny into his own hands. The consequences set him on a path through this world and beyond, offering him one last chance for love, life and redemption. Take an extraordinary journey with Mr Zero in this stirring and hilariously dark anti-musical as it asks us to consider the true price of a human soul, told through Joshua Schmidt's haunting score, inspired by gospel, opera, jazz and rock and roll. UK PremierePerformers Joseph Alessi, Kate Milner-Evans, Joanna Kirkland, Edd Campbell Bird, James Dinsmore, Helen Walsh, George Rae, Sue Appleby.
