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), 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).
Mother’s Ruin has played to sold out crowds with critical acclaim at Sydney Festival, Fringe World Festival, Adelaide Cabaret Festival, Melbourne Cabaret Festival and Festival of Voices.
“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… Proud and unapologetic, beautiful and powerful.” – TIME OUT
