Mother's Ruin: A Cabaret About Gin
Civic Park, Newcastle, NSW, 2300, Australia
28th March 2018
Equal parts historical and hysterical, lose yourself in the company of sailors, barmaids and bootleggers in this darkly comic cabaret. Fresh from the Sydney Festival and Spiegeltent Hobart, Mother’s Ruin is a raucous journey through 18th Century London, a few New York speakeasies, the Australian bush and the jungles of Peru. 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 by two of Australia’s rising stars of cabaret.
