Presented by Perth Festival

Travel from contemporary Australia to cosmopolitan Shanghai and to the misty byways of rural China in the enchanting family mystery A Ghost in My Suitcase.

Twelve-year-old Celeste arrives 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, adapted by Vanessa Bates from Gabrielle Wang’s award-winning book of the same name, is equal parts thrilling and heartwarming.
