A Ghost in My Suitcase

Date: 27 Nov 2018

Leaving behind her grieving father and brother in Australia, 12-year-old Celeste travels to Shanghai to scatter her Chinese mother’s ashes in the Isle of Clouds, her 500-year-old ancestral home.

In a land she finds puzzlingly familiar, Celeste meets her gutsy, ghost-hunting grandmother Por Por for the first time, and discovers her own spirit-chasing powers. Soon, Celeste is swept into a hair-raising battle, defying dangerous ancient spirits and teaming up with the hostile Ting Ting, Por Por’s adopted child, in a race to save her grandmother.

Adapted from Gabrielle Wang’s award-winning novel by Vanessa Bates and directed by Matt Edgerton and Ching Ching Ho, Barking Gecko’s beguiling stage production is led by a cast of female Asian-Australian actors and is suitable for ages 8+.
