Ghost in My Suitcase – Perth Festival

Concert or Performance

26 Feb 2019 to 3 Mar 2019

Join 12-year-old Celeste on her adventures in China in the delightful family mystery A Ghost in My Suitcase.

Celeste is in China to scatter her mother’s ashes, but in no time flat she’s thrust into a world of magic and myth. Her grandmother has carried on the family tradition of ghost catching and Celeste finds she too has a knack for the hair-raising pursuit.

Barking Gecko Theatre’s visually spectacular stage version of A Ghost in My Suitcase is adapted from Gabrielle Wang’s thrilling book of the same name, a winner of the 2009 Aurealis Award for Best Children’s Novel. From contemporary Australia to cosmopolitan Shanghai to the misty byways of rural China, Celeste’s tale takes place in the overlap of cultures and histories both big and small. Equal parts hair-raising and heartwarming, this rip-roaring adventure will enchant audiences of any age.

Ghost in My Suitcase is a Perth Festival Co-Commission. Perth Festival is one of Western Australia’s premier cultural events.
