★★★★★ (Time Out, Sydney). Nominated Best Cabaret: Fringe World Festival, Best Writing: Green Room Awards. Equal parts historical and hysterical, lose yourself among sailors, barmaids and bootleggers in this darkly comic cabaret. A raucous journey through the history of gin, that is ‘not only vocally sublime but a stroke of comedy genius’ (TheatrePress.com.au).

With true tales from 18th-century London, a few New York speakeasies, the Australian bush and the jungles of Peru, Mother’s Ruin features songs by Amy Winehouse, Nina Simone, Martha Wainwright and more. Ticket includes a Four Pillars Gin and Tonic.
