To round out the month we are very excited to bring Melbourne Theatre Company to Drysdale with a new work – Hungry Ghosts. 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. Two shows at 1pm and 7pm on Tuesday the May 29.
As we say, always something on at the Shed, we hope to see you here!
