All the world’s a grocery store, and all the men and women merely bitter cashiers.

This is the story of one cashier’s tragic descent into madness–but not before she scans your groceries, debates the absurdity of late stage capitalism, and converses with higher powers.

Grocery Store combines scathing monologues about low wage work with a good dose of sarcasm, humour, and magical realism to explore the inner life and social milieu of a very disgruntled cashier. Informed by the COVID-19 pandemic, but not constrained by it, Grocery Store brings the supermarket to the stage.

Content Notes:

Please note that this show has loud sudden noises, bright lights (with sudden change to darkness at times), shouting and swearing. There are characters eating on stage with smells of food. There are also discussions of mental health, references to war, and sexual content.
