Raised in the aisles of Asian grocery stores, the time has come for Shan and Yaya to escape—and haunt modern Australia. But how do a couple of idiot friends conjure a ‘totally hot, current, sexy, post-racial’ identity if they’re too busy stuffing their faces with Hello Panda? Shannan Lim and Vidya Rajan glide you through a late-night trolley ride of story, sketch and meandering rumination.
Part truth, part pack of lies, Asian Ghost-ery Store is a critically-acclaimed exorcism—a dark yet gleeful shopping spree of culture, race, and life in between.
‘Intelligent, witty and challenging in turns… an excellent piece of theatre.’ ★★★★ Sydney Morning Herald
‘A haunting headfuck of how theatre should be and will leave you, literally, with your mind blown.’ ★★★★★ Out in Perth
