Try `A = get_class('A1')` (instead of `A = get_class(A1)`).

In Python, you must carefully distinquish between a name (such as
`A1`) and a string (such as `'A1'`). A name is used to refer
to something, previously "bound" to the name (e.g. via an assignment).
If you use a name not yet bound (like in your `get_class(A1)`),
you will get a `NameError`.
