Hungry Ghosts

When you’re a young queer Chinese-Malaysian Australian, how do you work out where you belong in the world? Criss-crossing between our unnamed protagonist, the disappearance of flight MH370 and Malaysia’s billion-dollar 1MDB scandal, Hungry Ghosts offers an unconventional take on the complexities and mystery of contemporary life from exciting new playwright Jean Tong. 

Filled with humour, vivid imagery and rebellious energy, the World premiere of Hungry Ghostsfeatures Emina Ashman (Moths) and Jing-Xuan Chan (The Family Law). Directed by Petra Kalive (Melbourne Talam).

Hungry Ghosts is part of MTC’s award-winning Education program which reaches thousands of students across Victoria every year through programming for young audiences, regional touring, scholarships, workshops and our celebrated Sharing the Light initiative. Visit mtc.com.au/education for details.
