A Ghost in my Suitcase

A magical adventure about family, secrets and ghosts, adapted from Gabrielle Wang’s award-winning book.

A breathtaking and magical adventure about grief, hunting for ghosts and a secret family gift, adapted from Gabrielle Wang’s thrilling novel. The book was the winner of the 2009 Aurealis Award for Best Children’s Novel.

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. She also 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.

Written by Vanessa Bates and directed by Matt Edgerton and Ching Ching Ho. Barking Gecko’s beguiling and breathtaking stage production is led by a cast of female Asian-Australian actors and is suitable for ages 8+.
