Mother's Ruin: A Cabaret About Gin

23rd April 2018

presented by NCM in association with The Ginstress

Including a free Rock Rose Gin & Tonic

Equal parts historical and hysterical, lose yourself in the company of sailors, barmaids and bootleggers in this darkly comic cabaret. "Not only vocally sublime but a stroke of comedy genius" (TheatrePress), its critically acclaimed stars Maeve Marsden and Libby Wood return to the U.K. after playing to sold out crowds in London, Bristol, Birmingham, Edinburgh and across Australia.

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

With music originally performed by Amy Winehouse, Nina Simone, Martha Wainwright, Tom Waits, The Pretenders, Jessie J and more, Mother's Ruin moves from misery to vaudeville in a moment, intertwining excess and prohibition, history and (re)invention.



"A raucous masterclass" - ★★★★ (The Scotsman)



“ ... 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.” - ★★★★★ (The Wee Review)



“Blisteringly entertaining... Not everybody falls in love with gin, but I can’t imagine too many audience members could resist the charms of Mother’s Ruin.” - ★★★★★ (Time Out Sydney)
