The Melbourne season of A Ghost in My Suitcase is over. I’m exhausted but I’m sure the cast and crew of Barking Gecko Theatre are more so.
There have been sensational reviews of the play!
I cannot be any prouder. Here are some of them.
4 1/2 STARS Kelly-Louise Austin (Theatre People).
“The themes of loss, grief, multicultural families and Chinese traditions are handled gently, genuinely and lovingly. At times it made my heart hurt, yet I left with a big smile on my face.” Read the full review HERE
4 1/2 STARS Cameron Woodhead (The Age)
“A Ghost In My Suitcase is superb family theatre – a stylish, big-hearted and vibrant adaptation of a much-loved children’s book, delivered with all the vision and polish you’d expect from a major international arts festival. The thrillingly inventive spookiness of the stage magic is accompanied by a gleeful sense of purpose from the actors, who embrace with delight all the elaborately choreographed kung-fu witchery required to ward off spirits. Children will be delighted, and adults will be taken with it too.” Read the full review HERE
4 STARS Carissa Lee (Witness)
“Although this story is filled with the supernatural, at its heart it’s about Por Por showing Ting Ting and Celeste – and everyone in the audience – how it’s possible to overcome adversity and grief and seize our place in the world.” Read the full review HERE
4 STARS Thuy On (Arts Hub)
