Hungry Ghosts is a new Australian work by Jean Tong starring Emina Ashman, Jing-Xuan Chan and Bernard Sam that offers an unconventional take on contemporary life as it crisscrosses between the fate of flight MH370, Malaysia’s billion-dollar 1MDB scandal, and explorations of identity.

The MH370 disaster. Malaysia’s billion-dollar 1MDB scandal. These two events had international ramifications, but for our unnamed protagonist, they were earth-shattering. When you’re a young, queer Chinese-Malaysian Australian, how do work out where you belong in the world?

Hungry Ghosts forms part of MTC’s 2018 Education season. Following its world premiere in Melbourne, Hungry Ghosts will tour around Victoria and Tasmania as part of MTC’s annual regional tour.
