Come and experience the darkly humorous underbelly of the history of gin. We’ll have gin cocktails available all night long as well as their own Assembly infusions! With a VIP ticket you will even get our Mother’s Ruin G&T on arrival and a range of delicious nibbles delivered straight to your table.
But enough about us! What about the show? Starring two rising stars of cabaret, Maeve Marsden and Libby Wood, Mother’s Ruin has played sold out shows to critical acclaim right across Australia. Its equal parts historical and hysterical, be prepared to lose yourself in the company of sailors, barmaids and bootleggers in this darkly comic cabaret.
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, The Popes, The Pretenders and more, you can enjoy a good old sing a long too! It was Time Out's 10 Best Shows of Sydney Festival and nominated Best Cabaret Fringe World Festival, Best Writing Green Room Awards, so you know it’s good!
