At the webpage of Memento the following, among other things, is written about Zero:

"Zero by Chris O’Connell, is an explosive and anarchic stare at the ethics of torture, and the curse of censorship.

Ten years from now, in the face of a feast of unabated nihilism, hundreds of camps have been built to torture and gain information at any cost, from those who aim to blow apart the rich pickings of a world that is wealthy beyond its dreams. Alex, a translator at Camp Zero, seeks to tell the world of the brutal regime within the camps, and finds his life is suddenly on the line. Survival is paramount, death may be inevitable, but the truth has to be told.   

With this project Memento wishes to break the silence when it comes to our responsibility concerning human rights and definitions of potential security threats to our society. Through a dystopic portrayal of what our future will hold, unless we stop and think, Memento brings you its physical version of Chris O'Connell's disturbing play Zero."

The play was performed in English.
