A Ghost in My Suitcase - Primary and Secondary

Melbourne International Arts Festival

A

"Children’s theatre at its best."
SEESAW MAGAZINE (ON BARKING GECKO THEATRE)

The spirits you carry, they carry you too.

Twelve-year-old Celeste arrives in China to scatter Mother’s ashes, but in no time flat is thrust into a world of magic and adventure. Celeste’s grandmother has carried on the family tradition of ghost catching, and it turns out Celeste has a knack for the hairraising pursuit too.

This world premiere stage version of A Ghost in My Suitcase is adapted from Gabrielle Wang’s thrilling book of the same name, winner of the 2009 Aurealis Award for Best Children’s Novel.

From contemporary Australia to cosmopolitan Shanghai to the misty byways of rural China, the tale takes place in the overlap of cultures and histories both big and small.
