Matthew provided music for the premiere of Tim Luscombe's play, HUNGRY GHOSTS at the Orange Tree Theatre this November. Tim Luscombe directed with design by Tim Meacock.
Top British racing driver Tyler Jones arrives in Shanghai for the Chinese Grand Prix. His life comprises airports, hotels, racetracks, corporate events and 'brolly dollies'. For Tyler, Shanghai is no different from Bahrain or Melbourne. He’s happy to toe the corporate party line as long as he can do what he lives to do: race cars. But when he meets and falls for Chinese dissident Pin-de, their worlds collide. Racing ambition seems suddenly futile set against Pin-de’s struggle for survival in authoritarian China. How can he square his new found awareness about the reality of life and death in China, and help Pin-de, without losing everything he has?
