‘Fascinating and moving, an intellectually rich piece that also taps a deep emotional vein.’
Filled with humour, vivid imagery and rebellious energy, the World premiere of Hungry Ghosts features Emina Ashman (Moths), Jing-Xuan Chan (The Family Law) and Bernard Sam. 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.
Commissioned with the support of the Joan & Peter Clemenger Trust. Developed with the support of The Cybec Foundation through MTC’s Cybec Electric play reading series as part of the 2017 AsiaTOPA Festival.
‘Questioning, visually evocative and lingeringly emotional, Hungry Ghosts feels fresh and current and a most worthy piece of programming to reach out intelligently to new audiences as part of MTC’s award-winning Education program aimed at making connections with thousands of students across Victoria every year.’
Hungry Ghosts is the ideal introduction to non-naturalism for Year 10 and VCE Unit 1 Drama. To make a school group booking, email firstname.lastname@example.org or call (03) 8688 0963.
