Mother's Ruin

A Cabaret About Gin
Australia

Stumble and soar through tales of love and women, gin and secrets, as Maeve Marsden and Libby Wood wind their way through 18th-century London, a few New York speakeasies, the Australian bush and the jungles of Peru, via sailors and barmaids, bootleggers and master distillers. Equal parts historical and hysterical, Mother’s Ruin explores the history of gin through story and song, all heaving harmonies and tipsy candour.

With two of Australia’s rising cabaret stars at the helm, Mother’s Ruin moves from misery to vaudeville in a moment, intertwining excess and prohibition, history and (re)invention.

With music originally performed by Amy Winehouse, Nina Simone, Martha Wainwright, The Popes, The Pretenders and more, Mother’s Ruin is a theatrical cabaret that is ‘not only vocally sublime, but a stroke of comedy genius’ (Theatre Press).

‘Blisteringly entertaining.’ DAILY REVIEW

‘A spot-on balance of larky humour, bolshy political consciousness, palpable passion for their subject and sheer joie de vivre.’ THE SCOTSMAN
