Mother's Ruin

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, into the Australian bush and the jungles of Peru. Brimming with music originally performed by Amy Winehouse, 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, Edinburgh Festival Fringe and Sydney Opera House.

Produced by MILKE and blackcat productions in association with The Ginstress
