A college theater department staging an avant-garde work about a man losing his job to automation may seem a particularly 2017 occurrence, but this production is more Coolidge-esque than Trumpian. This 1923 work by Elmer Rice follows the life and afterlife of Mr. Zero, an everyman accountant whose tale of superfluity may leave you asking if technology—whether it’s a jazz-age adding machine or a space-age self-driving car—has helped or hurt society.
