Bread & Circus - World Buskers Festival.

Lose yourself in the company of sailors, barmaids and bootleggers for a soulful, song-filled ode to gin – equal parts historical and hysterical. With tipsy candour, rising cabaret stars Maeve Marsden and Libby Wood take us on a sublime musical journey through the history of ‘mother’s ruin’, aka gin.

They stumble and soar through tales of love and women, gin and secrets, through 18th Century London, a few New York speakeasies, colonial India, into the Australian bush and the jungles of Peru.

Brimming with music originally performed by Amy Winehouse, Nina Simone, Martha Wainwright, The Popes, The Pretenders and more, Mother’s Ruin premiered to full houses and critical acclaim at Sydney Festival, Adelaide and Melbourne Cabaret Festivals, Darwin and Brisbane Festival and sold out at Edinburgh Festival Fringe.
