A Cabaret about gin

Lose yourself in the company of sailors, barmaids and bootleggers in this darkly comic cabaret. With tipsy candour, rising cabaret stars Maeve Marsden and Libby Wood take us on a sublime musical journey through the history of ‘mother’s ruin’, aka gin. They stumble and soar through 18th century London, a few New York speakeasies, colonial India, the Australian bush and the jungles of Peru.

Brimming with music originally performed by Amy Winehouse, Nina Simone, Martha Wainwright, The Popes, The Pretenders and more, Mother’s Ruin premiered to full houses and critical acclaim at Sydney Festival, Adelaide and Melbourne Cabaret Festivals, and they recently sold out their run at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.
