A Ghost in My Suitcase

A Ghost in My Suitcase
 
 
Adapted by Vanessa Bates from Gabrielle Wang's award-winning novel, A Ghost in My Suitcase is an action-packed adventure story that crosses cultural and spiritual worlds.
Twelve-year-old Celeste—'half French, half Chinese and all Australian'—travels to China to scatter her mother's ashes. There she meets her grandmother, Por Por, a quirky and wise woman with an unusual skill. Por Por is a ghost-hunter and her services are much in demand.
When Celeste learns she may have inherited her grandmother's talent, she must decide whether to acknowledge her gifts and use them to save her family and friends—and if she has the strength needed for the job.
Filled with fantastical characters from this world and the next, A Ghost in My Suitcase is a beautifully told tale of mystery, grief, difference and acceptance.

WINNER: 2019 AWGIE Award for Theatre for Young Audiences.In Summer of the Aliens, Lewis is a young man on the cusp of adulthood, growing up in a Melbourne housing commission. Set against the backdrop of the Cuban missile crisis, the play is a coming-of-age story about sex and family, alien invasions, and suburban tragedies played out behind closed doors.In Così, Lewis is fresh out of university and directing Mozart’s Così fan tutte with the inmates of a mental institution. As anti-Vietnam protests take place in the streets outside, Lewis finds himself stepping off the sidelines to become emotionally involved with his actors’ lives.In This Much is True, Lewis is a writer ‘between divorces’ and temporarily adrift among the outsiders and dropouts of an inner-city Sydney pub. Older, and possibly wiser, Lewis is once more drawn into a world of colourful characters, all of them searching for magic in the mundane.Lewis’ constant search for connection plays out against the evolving hopes and battles of Australian society — just like us, only more extraordinary.
