What if everything – and everyone – was owned by a corporation?

The Vancouver premiere of Andy Garland’s A-Grade, a play about love in a dystopian future.

Written by award-winning playwright Andy Garland, A-Grade is set in a world in the not-too-distant future, where everything – and everyone – is owned by a corporation or conglomerate. Every human being is an employee or a tradeable commodity, designated into ‘grades’ based on their overall worth to the company. Murray, a ‘B minus’, has applied to the company for a wife. When a fugitive A-Grade arrives in place of the average wife he had been assigned, Murray is forced to make a choice between the company that raised him and the love he never expected.
