After it's SOLD OUT season at Sydney Festival earlier this year, Lost in Shanghai is heading to OzAsia Festival this October. 

"A tantalising insight into the breadth and bravery she displayed across her career" - The Age/Sydney Morning Herald. 

Of all the stories Jane Hutcheon has encountered as an ABC journalist, China correspondent, war zone reporter and author, one has intrigued her more than any other: that of her mother Beatrice’s turbulent childhood in pre-Communist Shanghai.

Visiting Shanghai in 2018, Jane began to search for the truth of her mother’s difficult beginnings.  Lost in Shanghai is the result, a story of an ordinary Eurasian family in extraordinary times, set against a backdrop of fading colonial opulence, civil war and revolution.

Using projected images from the family archive curated by photographer-storyteller William Yang, and music composed and performed by Terumi Narushima, Jane narrates this moving true story in her own words.

Written and performed by Jane Hutcheon

Co-directed by William Yang and Tasnim Hossain

Dramaturgy by Tasnim Hossain

Composer/musician Terumi Narushima
