Mother's Ruin: A Cabaret about Gin says
Equal parts historical and hysterical, lose yourself in the company of sailors, barmaids and bootleggers in this darkly comic cabaret.

Fresh from Sydney Festival, Mother's Ruin is a raucous journey through 18th Century London, a few New York speakeasies, the Australian bush and the jungles of Peru.

"Not only vocally sublime but a stroke of comedy genius" (TheatrePress).

Mother's Ruin moves from misery to vaudeville in a moment, intertwining excess and prohibition, rebellion and (re)invention.

In the midst of the Australia's gin renaissance, discover a little more about your favourite drop, with this mixed up musical history lesson delivered with dry wit and "almost symbiotic harmonies" (Adelaide Advertiser).

Starring two of Australia's rising stars of cabaret, Mother's Ruin features music by Amy Winehouse, Nina Simone, Merle Haggard, Martha Wainwright, Billy Joel, The Popes, The Pretenders and more.

Sold out at Adelaide Cabaret Festival, Melbourne Cabaret Festival and Festival of Voices.

Presented by: Milke & blackcat productions, in association with The Ginstress
