HUNGRY GHOSTS by Jean Tong
How long is a piece of string if you tie one end to your home country and the other to your heart?
A young Malaysian–Chinese woman leaves the security of family for the freedom of life in Australia. Part mystery and part dark comedy, Hungry Ghosts explores what it is to be ‘missing’ – from being absent at the family dinner table to the still-missing Malaysian Airlines Flight MH370.
This is a play for those who left home and never found their way back. Suitable for Year 10+, it contains coarse language and mature themes. A non-naturalistic contemporary Australian drama with the key themes of Identity and Belonging, Culture, Loss, Politics and Migration.
A great excursion for Performing Arts, English, Humanities and Languages students.
Running time: 75 minutes (90 minutes including Q&A)
MTC’s Regional Enrichment Program brings fantastic learning opportunities to regional schools and students. In 2018 there will be FREE Pre-Show Talks and Post–show Q&A sessions available for audiences seeing Hungry Ghosts. Workshops linked to this production will also be available at low or no cost to participating schools, and Education Packs and the script of the play will be available in Term 1.
