Stills from the play A First Class

A father sacrifices his organs to fund his wife’ s crazed brain-altering attempt to create A FIRST CLASS DAUGHTER. Is this truly the route to perfection?

A First Class - posterThe mother’s desperate efforts to make her daughter a first-class person are a pitiful sight. She has had her daughter’ s brain changed into that of a confirmed genius musician with an IQ of 155, and yet she is only screaming in her room.

The mother changes her brain again, saying her daughter has been becoming a third-class person.

This time, she becomes a decent first-class person who only studies. However, she gives up on joining the company and stays in her room with an encyclopaedia, saying she is embarrassed that she won second place in the entrance examination. Again, she is not a first-class person.

However, her father has already sold his heart, large intestine, liver, and eyes to contribute to the first-class appearance of his wife and daughter.

What else should he sell now? what will the dad look like next time… if she can finally be made into a first-class person?
