Equal parts historical and hysterical, lose yourself in the company of sailors, barmaids and bootleggers in this darkly comic cabaret.
A raucous journey through the history of gin, two of Australia’s rising stars, Maeve Marsden and Libby Wood, share tales of love and women, gin and secrets, tipsily making their way through 18th Century London, a few New York speakeasies, the Australian bush and the jungles of Peru.
Featuring songs by Amy Winehouse, Nina Simone, Martha Wainwright, The Popes, The Pretenders and more, Mother’s Ruin moves from misery to vaudeville in a moment, intertwining excess and prohibition, history and (re)invention.
