Mother's Ruin - A Cabaret about Gin

Dates: 
Wed, 16/10/2019 - 8:00pm to 9:00pm

Equal parts historical and hysterical, all heaving harmonies and tipsy candour, explore the history of gin through story and song. Stumble and soar through tales of love and women, gin and secrets, as we wind our 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. 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. Mother’s Ruin has been touring to full houses and critical acclaim, with sold out seasons at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, London Underbelly Festival, Sydney Festival, Adelaide Cabaret Festival, Melbourne Cabaret Festival, Fringe World Festival Perth, Adelaide Fringe and Festival of Voices, among others. “It’s the range, depth, and content of the stories Marsden and Wood tell us, along with the gorgeous harmony of their pure voices, that linger once the cabaret is over… Proud and unapologetic, beautiful and powerful.” – Time Out
