If you’re looking for a night of beautiful voices, comedy gold and gin Mother’s Ruin is the show for you. A dazzling performance by two rising stars in the Adelaide Cabaret scene.
Prepare to laugh and learn as your two hosts (and pianist) take you through the history and urban myths that surround gin. A darkly humorous history, it turns out, involving imperialism, conquest, debauchery and more. As the ladies bring you through this marvellous story, they deliver altered classics from Amy Winehouse, Nina Simone, Merle Haggard, Martha Wainwright, Billy Joel, The Popes, The Pretenders and more.
The voices and talent of Libby Wood and Maeve Marsden are astounding. The songs are carefully remodelled to fit the theme and are interspersed with moments of lightening wit and comic genius. History comes to life as these two ladies deliver a performance full of humour, delight and flagrant alcoholism.
The lights go down, the gin comes out, it’s a wonderful show.
